    Would be nice to find out if its worth paying the difference for a XTX over a XT. Are the XTX's clocking better than the standard XT's?

    Read a few posts which suggest that the XTX cores are cherry picked and do have more headroom for overclocking.

    Whats you stable Max Core and Memory Clocks?

    Well if i was to go for the x1900, then id just go for the XT, will clock to XTX easily, but may not clock as good as the XTX, but surely that would'nt matter, as your still getting an XTX for an XT price regardless, so your still saving money. :)

    Some XTX's are clocking nearly 800 on the core

    That would be very nice, but I wonder how many of them do that.
    The XTs can be had for around the 365 mark where as the XT-Xs are nearly £50 more, and that's with OcUKs deal of the week. I'm tempted to get a new card soon, but I'd probably go for the XT unless those of you with the XT-Xs can persuade me other wise with your overclocks.

    Come on tell us what you've got :)

    I've not seen 800mhz on the core unless under dry ice or similar cooling. 730 - 740 seems to be the average max air clock.
