Is xCache something different all together?  I know it's for caching php but
is it recommended to use nCache, proxy_cache, or Varnish if you're already
using xCahce?

"NCache is now in nginx core , you can use it as nginx proxy cache."

I don't use Varnish, but I'm pretty sure it isn't _far_ better.
But the answer really depends on your exact use-case.
