Default XT Platinum VS. Pro

Tell everyone what you think, is the price difference worth it? if so then why do you feel that way? which would you choose of the two and why? I'm sure this will ease a lot of peoples minds over a big decision like $500 XT or $400 Pro. $100 is a lot of money and if you have reasons why you might choose the pro over platinum voice them.

XT Platinum is just an overclocked XT. That is all.

Hmm well, the Pro still destroys the 9800XT and my 9800 Pro, so both cards are more than capable and great values......I would get the X800XT PE, just because I can though Could probably run F1C '99-'02 at 150fps Sure, you can't distinguish from 70fps up, but come on!!!! 150FPS!!!!!
