    >> performance-wise, is this correct:
    >> ATI Radeon X1900 GT < ATI Radeon X1950 XT < ATI Radeon X1950 Pro

    > XT has got [...] slightly newer GPU (R580 vs R570) than GT.

    I think it's like this:
    RV570: X1950 GT/Pro
    R580: X1900 GT/XT/XTX
    R580+: X1950 XT/XTX

    For XT and XTX, X1950 is faster than X1900. For GT, it's the other way round.

    Alright, eBay transaction for the FireGL has been cancelled. Seller's claim of the FireGL being faster than the Mac X800 XT based on wrong comparisons (comparing X800 PC stock against FireGL). This is a reminder to always check the specs yourself, not just trusting flashy ads talk...
    Since I don't really need the dual boot, I'll now use a Sapphire 1950 Pro with 512 MB VRAM.

    Most likely only part of this VRAM will be available to MorphOS (so don't be surprised).

    Thanks for the warning. What's the max VRAM MorphOS can use?
