Hello anyone that reads this,
Now first things first, when it coems to graphics cards im not all too clever.

Now the graphics card im wanting to buy is the new radeon 9800 xt.
But upon actually going to find some prices etc for this card, ive foudn that there are various different types.
Could someone possibly tell me what the difference is between these cards:

ASUS Radeon 9800 XT /TVD
ATI Sapph Radeon 9800 XT 256MB
ATI Radeon 9800 XT 256MB

I know each of these come with different "extras" in box, but i dont care about any of that, other than that are these cards identical?

All Radeon XT's have identical specifications.

Their core and memory clocks run at the same rate, and their performance is identical.

------------------
Radeon 9500 (hardmodded to PRO, o/c to 322/322)
AMD AthlonXP 2400+ (o/c to 2600+ with 143 fsb)
3dMark03: 4055
