I found an X800XT PCI-E on eBay for $470 total, even though I was orginally going to get the X800XL. The seller shipped it out today and I should be getting the XT by Tuesday . . . the questions here are :
1) Is it worth the extra money to keep the XT over selling it and buying the XL?
2) When will XLs reach NEAR MSRP price, let's just say, $330-ish . . .
The rest of my rig is in my sig (lol, that rhymes)
Note: I am not playing Doom3, so no nVidia recommendations . . . I'm playing HL2, CounterStrike Source, and possibly FarCry (with other non GPU intensive games here and there)
Also note : The X800XT is an OEM pulled from a Dell, so I would be unable to RMA it if something went wrong (the seller has already assured me that if there is something wrong with the card when I get it, he will refund my $$)
edit: actually, i'm looking at the auction page and it says "Built by ATi"
thats the page, even if its pulled from a PC, would i be able to RMA it if something went wrong?
