fx5950ultra vs radeon x1950 pro

Hi all, new here, am just having a new pc built from an insurance company as a replacement for a stolen machine and they have offered me a x1950 pro card 256mb pci express as a replacement for my previous geforce fx1950ultra AGPx8. 256mb

my question is will i see a big difference in speed with this new card or is it a worse card than my previous card? The machine specs are the same as before. P4640 3.2ghz socket 775, 1gb 533 ram, 500w PSU,160gb HD,

any advise on if i should accept this card would be of great help

  1. no? not taking piss, to be honest when i built the machine a while back the 5950 ultra was one of the fstest on the market but since then i have not had aby reason to keep up to date with the current graphics card progress, i realise that PCIe is faster than AGP but the first card the insurance offered was a 7300SE and this was actually slower than my previous 5950ultra.. :evil: so i complained to them and they have now offered me the x1950 pro so thought id get some users opinion. seems the difference is more than just a little then? as a note i could run HL2 on my old machine at full resolution and settings (except AA) and still return over 50 Fps. so was hoping for similar results from the x1950 pro. :?:

    sorry for seeming dumb. :lol:
  2. I just bought a x1950 pro. Brilliant card. It is the the lower end of ATI highend cards

    Your old 5950ultra is like a 6600GT. A 6600GT when is was released was a midrange card. 6600GT is much better btw

    Go the x1950 pro. I am playing all my games @ 1680x1050 with all the graphices turned up high.

    I get insane FPS in the Counter Strike: Source stress test, 150fps @ 1680x1050 with HDR and full AA.
  3. ummm...hell yeah you'll see a big difference. :)
  4. What system are you running?

    YEAH, 1000 posts for me 8)
  5. The difference would be like going from a Fiat to a Ferrari.

    :lol: :lol: :lol:
  7. considering FIAT is a consortium, we may say that Ferrari is part of FIAT. There is a small nuance here - very small I admit.
    Back to topic: the Ati has the 5950 for lunch - as in roughly 4 times faster.
  8. cheers guys for the views, sounds like a good deal anyhow so feel better now than when i received there first offer.
    note... the FIAT barchetta is faster than many older ferraris! :lol:
  9. Go with the X1950. It will be like when you upgraded from dial-up to high speed internet.
  10. Everyone has to take everything so seriously!

    Here's a better version:

    It's like going from a Lada to an Ultima.

    Edited. :oops:
  12. the difference is quite obvious, it will be like having a silicon oscillator with only 1 transistor as your processor then going to a C2Q..
  13. It will be like going from nvidia to ATI.

    (sorry, couldn't resist). :lol:
