Congrats on the card. I was going to pull the trigger but decided to wait.
Only diff in performance is at higher resolutions between the two. Even @ higher resolutions, not a huge delta.
FYI ATI has a new core coming out in 4-6 weeks. Still unsure if it's going to be a further optimized R350 core (higher clocks and hyperZ enhancements) or a .13m version of the core running at an even faster speed. My best is on the former.
I think ATI is saving the die shrink for the R4XX core due out in January. Doesn't make sense to go to the expense to shrink the die since the R3XX core can still scale higher. Average overclocks are in the 425MHZ range.
