why stepping down from the xt to the 9800Pro? Is it voltage, heat, or just something that was too expensive and you needed the cash? It's hard for me to see at an overclockers forum someone turrning down a top rated card for its fully competant but still shorter and less powerful little brother. I am just curious and am not trying to be critical. I am just wondering why the downgrade?

to be completely honest i need the money. ive had it pretty hard over the last couple of months and the 9800pro iceq seemed an nice card to step down top, ive heard good things about this card, just want to know weather any one has had any experiances with the card.
