If you have the money, go with the XT, I mean, why not? right.

I don't think there is much difference between the 256mb and 128mb, but if you can afford it go with the 256mb, you might need it in the future

Here's the deal, with the XT you get 256MB DDR, with the pro you get 128MB DDR. There is NO game out there (yet) that can take advantage of 256MB and buy the time there is, the XTs will be half-off.
