The 2900 Is 30 bucks more and has smaller memory.

I've also been reading some user reviews and they say to make sure you have enough "room" for the card. I heard someone also say it takes up two pci slots?

We are talking about the 2900PRO, not the 2900XT.

Every high performance card takes up an extra expansion slot... If that really bothers you, then wait and buy the RV670 based ATi cards in November.
