The XT is going to outperform the the Pro.

I would avoid buying the entire X800 series altogether if at all possible.

The XT is faster than the Pro, and the GTO2 will unlock to an X850XTPE. Lite Retail means it dosn't come with the accessories.

The X8** series was a bunch of mubble jumbble. They were pointless cards, and WAY WAY overpriced even still they are WAY WAY overpriced. The X8** series was only there because ATI was falling behind and needed to quickly bring out somethign againsnt nvidia's 6*** series. Plus no SM2 support :|

Go buy the 6800GS
