Yeah they are the same exact speed in the gb/s (gigabytes per second). The only difference is the pipelines from 12 to 16. I dont think its worth getting rid of your pro and then getting a xt. If you havnt bought it yet and you have a chance to change your order then it wouldnt be a bad idea.

I dont know how your going to exchange it if its already open and working fine. Unless you got it from bestbuy or something and you can say its bad, then pick a new.

ok so you are telling me that thats not a bad idea??

I bought My X850Pro 20 days ago in bestbuy and you know they give you 30 days to return stuff it was on sale for $229.99 so it was a pretty good deal i think but now i found the 850XT in microcenter for $299.99 and i tought that i could buy the XT but i don't know if the difference in graphics will be big so just tell me what would you do on my place??

Its not worth going through all that trouble, and spending more money also. They are the same exact speeds. Just on has a tad more pipelines. The graphics wont be noticable at all because they are exactly the same speed.
