I recently bought one, to tide me over 'till the new cards drop (alot) in price.
But I want to know what card that Nvidia has does it compare to?

Exactly which X1900 did you buy? The X1900GT, XT, XTX? Crossfire is ATI's dual GPU solution and you'd have to own two X1900s to use it. Two X1950XTXs are almost as fast as a stock 8800GTX in some cases.

The short answer is "8800 GTX" indeed.

Start at the URLs below and change the game and resolution to compare. For example
in Oblivion at 1920x1200 at high quality you'll find that the 8800 GTX gets 28.7 fps while the x1900 crossfire gets 27.1 (XT) or 27.4 (XTX).

Ah, but that's using Crossfire.
I just bought one, and I don't plan on spending any more.
What does it compare to with just one card?

EDIT: A 7950GX2 then?

Yeah. I don't remember if the "Crossfire" model is an XT or an XTX but either way it's very close to the 7950GX2 on those charts. It's got 512 MB, right?

Yes, it has 512mb on it.

Well, guess I won't need to upgrade any time soon.
Should last me another year or so, if it's similar to a 7950GX2. :)

The 7950GX2 is two 7950gt's stuck together. It's basically single slot SLI. Your x1900 is a little faster than 1 7950gt, but not a 7950GX2. Of course, this is assuming that the drivers for the GX2 are working properly, which is another story.

In any case your x1900 is plenty fast and you shouldn't "have" to upgrade for a while.
