I'm looking for a new video card to run on an Asus P5B Deluxe. Don't want SLI or Crossfire as it cost to much for 2 video cards. Looking to spend around $350 CDN (300 US). I've heard the ATI 1900XT is good but can't seem to find any in the Mississauga-Hamilton area (Canada).

What do you recommend of the following based on best performace for the buck? All range from $300-360.

GF 7900GS
GF 7900GT
GF 7900GT KO
GF 7900GTO
GF 7950GT
ATI 1900GT
ATI 1950Pro
ATI 1950XT

If you want better value, go for either X1950Pro or 7900GS, but the X1950XT is best from that list.

Yeah, I just picked up a 7900 GS for $200. It's a great card! And quiet! All other video cards I've ever owned have needed alternative cooling due to the noise from the stock heatsinks, but not this one. Cool and quiet, $200 well spent I say.

7900GTO or 7900GT and then wait for the next round of DX10 cards.
