XT was based on 9800PRO + 9600PRO chipset, making it with GPU qualities of 9800 series, but Power Requiremtns of 9600 series. (means no external power required)

i'm using ATi Built card, definately go for it. else Asus is reliable as well, MSI started this season on ATi chips so I wont recommend them straight away.

as I had tested every manufacturer out of ATI chipset cards, powercolor use to make very nice cards, they started crap this season, else hercules was very nice , but they stopped manufacturing.
