Okay so I have decided to upgrade my video card from my current 8800gt, I would like to go back to ATI chipsets and I feel that the 4890 is the best bang for my buck. That being said I am just currently debating which is a better buy, the 4890 or the 4890xt. At the price right now we are really only talking about a $17 difference. Is the 4890 XT with the only notable difference being the extra 25mhz of core clock really that much of an upgrade?

Newegg.ca - XFX HD-489A-ZDEC Radeon HD 4890 Xtreme 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
I have chosen to go with XFX again as my last card the 8800gt was very reliable and I am quite happy with that brand. I also have a sufficent 600w power supply with the 2x 6pin connectors required to run this card. As long as I stay away from the XXX version which has a 8pin and 6pin I should be fine with this card.
Can someone please help me settle this debate?
