The two video cards I am looking at right now are the Radeon X1950 pro(512mb) and and the X1950XT(256mb). The XT is only $20 more($180-200), but isn't more memory going to be a bigger factor with the newer games coming out? I have not kept up to date with the new cards coming out since I have not had the cash to even think about building a new system for 4 years.
Finally have around $900 to spend on new rig and was looking at these two cards to go along with a intel dual core processor(not sure which one yet). Also will be sure to snag 2gb of RAM. Just trying to think which will run games better.
