Videocard Sapphire Radeon X800XL Vivo Vs Non-Vivo?

Ok i got a new Sapphire Radeon X800XL 256MB(for 399.95+tax CND) , upon further inspection when i got home i noticed it was the Vivo (always wanted one). Did i score a better card at the non vivo pric or did i get screwed? Any input welcome as long its on topic(hates to read babble).

VIVO's are a lot of fun. Easier to manage than an AIW and you'd probably end up using a cable box for the input (svideo) anyway

Any fudging on the internals would be up to Sapphire.. to lower the price. Otherwise it would be identical to a reference card.

All AGP XL's sport the Rage Theater 200. Perhaps they had a glut of them since transitioning to the 550 Pro and figured that including them would help justify the higher margin than their PCIe counterparts (beyond the cost of the Rialto bridge).
