Well that's not what's interesting, that it can be ocd to XT and it's price is on the other hand.

For $250 its a great card, dont forget your buying an XT lmao, some people over at XS are reporting them as XT's as soon as they pop them in, drivers, atitool and the gpu-z showing some as XT;s. regardless they are flashable to XT which is awesome for $250

That price point makes it really tempting. This could possibly be a transition card for those of us who won't be drinking the DX10/Vista juice any time soon but still want a DX9 upgrade.

Damn... this is VERY tempting...


I got just that money left to blow, and I love to invest in such underclocked/flashable to high end cards (current card a 7900GTO).

But I probably wouldn't see much of an improvement from my current card.
