Am replacing my defective Sapphire x1950 Pro and am considering another branded x1950 Pro or a BFG GeForce 7950GT....
they are somewhat similar in cost, but is one better than the other for games like GRAW, NWN2, Titan Quest?
I am running on a 20" LCD w/ 1600x1200 res.
I agree with you Cleeve. X1950XT for sure over 7950GT for the same price, and X1950 pro over 7950GT at the normal $50+ price difference. But priced the same the 7950GT seems the better bargain compared to the pro. But beofre buying I'd look to see what the X1900GT and X1950XT sell for as that will show if the 7950GT is a bargain price or the X1950 pro is way overpriced.
I bow to the almightly Cleeve: the 7950GT is faster than the X1950Pro. What I should have said is that the X19xx family whoops the 79xx family price/performance-wise, not in absolute performance. Though you might find individual exceptions.
