X1900 All in wonder?
I am considering buying a X1900 AIW, mainly for folding and gaming. The tv tuner is also a nice addition. However, the reason that I would get it over, say an X1900GT or a X1950 Pro is that it still has all 48 shaders (that what you call them?) instead of the GT and the Pro, which only have 36. Also, it seems that with adequate cooling you can usually overclock it to 600/600 easily, and sometimes to 700/700, from 500/490.
As far as prices are concerned, Zipzoomfly.com has it for $215 shipped. It also comes with Adobe Premeire 2.0 Elements and Adobe Photoshop Elements, which I already have and plan on selling my extra copies for $50, putting the effective price at $165.
I have a few questions:
1. Do you think it is worth $215? (w/o selling software)
2. Do you think it is worth $165? (w/ selling software)
3. Since the 8800GTX is coming out next week, do you think that the prices will go down for the AIW, or not, considering that it is the top-of-the-line TV tuner/Graphics card out there?
