    Just looking at the ATI X1800XT 512mb cards and notice they have different things at the beginning of their names like Powercolor, Sapphire and HIS Excalibur..

    What do they all mean, what is the difference?

    They are just the Brand names, there is no differance at all in the cards as they are all the same, only differances are the pics on the coolers, Sapphire's have a pic of an aliens head on em, Connect3D have a pic of Ruby on em, and only other diff is what software you get, like games etc... :)

    Ah, so the price difference is entirely because of the varying games/software?

    There are also different warranties that come with each brand.
