    Why don't you read several of the umpteen reviews available that do such a
    comparison between those cards.

    Anandtech and Tomshardware are two for a start.

    Thanks for the URL, but it was a question for people to answer, red
    the reviews, and if they read the reviews would like to know if they
    thought it was worth it ?

    From what iam read the Xt aint much faster and i canget a x800 pro for
    700 bucks or less, XTS will be 1 grand or more :(, not paying that
    much for a card even though i can afford it.

    Iam in Aussieland as well, Sydney.

    So when i go from 9600 pro to X800 i should be happy then :)
