Default Good Deal?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127205

Need a vid card for my new build. What do you guys think...good deal or not? It's cheaper than the 7900gt I was looking at.

what kinda 7900gt were you looking at??? but I would look into the radeon x1900xtx by saphire. I think it is cheaper

But like I was saying you can get a EVGA 7900gt for like 250 dollars.

Doesn't the x1900xtx outperform the 7900gt?

Yea try and get a 1900XT, they OC good too. You can OC them to XTX speeds easily and save urself $50-100 or w.e it is for a XTX. Or get a cheap 7600GT (X1600XT if you are an ATI fanboy but 7600 performs better) and wait for R600 which will kill the 1900s (and 1950s)

Wait...why get a 1900xt when the xtx is the same price? Look at the link. I'm not an ATI fanboy, in fact I've had all nvidias so far. But ~$270 for an xtx seems like a good deal unless I'm missing something (which is what I wanna know).
