you are about to start a huge debate in this thread.
cause we all have our opinions of what to get. i personally have an Evga 5900SE. it came to me at 400/700 speds and i have it at 475/854. the gpu is 5950 speeds and the memory isnt but its close. and keep in mind, you can flash bios to the 5950 and overclcok higher sometimes. i am not going to cause i am going to use the EVGA StepUp program so i can get the nv40 cheaper (if it comes out within 71 days). if you get a 5900 non ultra and not the XT/SE, you will have faster RAM and you can overclock even more than the XT/SE (the non ultra's have 2.2 ns memory and the XT/SE have 2.8)
