i think 2900 pro is just a 2900XT
but the GPU could not go to 740Mhz so they just make it 600Mhz,,,
and a 300dollar worth 2900pro comes out

I recently bought an 2900 pro myself, and I truely believe it will surprise the 8800 gts' as new drivers come out.
Like serously.. look at the 2900's specs XD By that alone it should surpass the 8800 gts by a long shot, but to bad the majority of games are favoured towards Nvidia.

Either one of these will be bottlenecked significantly by your CPU if you're not overclocking. I'd expect to see scores in the range of 7500 on 3DMark06 w/ a 4200+ whereas a stock 8800 GTS w/ a fast CPU will generally run in the area of 8500-9000.
