    not really worth going to XT, as they are nearly the same speed and with a bit of overclocking the pro will reach XT speeds easily

    If you could snag a R360 core 9800 Pro you can give it a BIOS flash to an XT.

    A 9800 Pro is still a decent card, especially at the sub £100 prices they are now. Buying a 9800XT doesn't really make sense considering what else you could get for the same money i.e. mid-high range current generation cards (excluding the 7800!)

    If you want a tv tuner this is great value for money and still a decent graphics card.
