Yeah, I cant exactly afford that... cause see I have about $390 right now. And I need a new monitor(i dropped the one im using and broke it, i can barely see anything). And on newegg i found a nice widescreen monitor for $190. So with that I have $200 left, and I dont want to cut myself completely short on cash so I was looking to buy a card around $150
Only thing I don't like about the X1900GT is that the card was $139 shipped back in December through Newegg. And the 7900GS has been as low as $135 through Best Buy retail stores. Anyway, both good cards if priced the same, but the X1900GT is >= the 7900GS in my eyes( or equal to Oc'd versions), so for less money it's the card to get.
If you consider overclocking, true. Or maybe even a rev 1 X1900GT is above a X1950 pro after max overclock (look at GW's X1900GT). But at stock speeds X1950 pro > X1900GT rev1 > X1900GT rev2 (like the ones we link). I'd still take a rev 2. X1900GT over a 7900GS, especially if it's cheaper.
