With the rising prices on these cards, I am trying to decide between a Sapphire x800pro VIVO, ($180) an ATI x850pro VIVO($240), and a Sapphire x800gto2($270). A lot of the stores seem to have jacked up their prices almost overnight. Your advice is very appreciated. I plan to make either an x800xt pe (from the x800pro) or an x850xt pe ( from the x850 or the gto2) by flashing the bios and overclocking. Will there be a discernable performance difference between an unlocked x800xtpe and an unlocked x850xtpe? Hoping to buy/order tonight. Also if anyone knows of a cheaper site, let me know, newegg seems to be the current cheapest. Goal is for smooth gaming over the next year. Thanks!
