depends on the amount of the overclock but the 7900gtx is close to the x1900xt, with some overclocking it will probably edge it out. but if your considering a gfx card from that range then the x1900xt is the sensible choice provided your psu is up to the job.

cheers m8 ! am i to asume the x1900xt will not overclock much ?

Some don't, my HIS card only gets to 655 on the core and the memory won't even go up 1 mhz before I get artifacts. I've heard of other people having trouble overclocking the HIS cards too.

nvidia cards seem to be much more overclockable, the 7900gto seems like a better buy at the moment and it's 30 pounds cheaper than the HIS. I only went for the HIS cus I was impatient and I needed the video input.

Well the 7900GTO would have to be overclocked a fair bit to get to X1900XTX speeds. The X1900XT 256MB is a better buy, price versus performance imo.

The 7900GTX = X1900XTX, get whichever is cheaper, as overclocking is likely to be close.
