One other card you might want to consider is a 7950. In tests it is only slightly less powerful than the 1950 XT. I was shopping for a video card just recently and was originally only considering the 1950 Pro or the 1950 XT. But I ran across a 7950 on clearance, checked Tom's VGA charts, bought it and I've got no complaints. It was the best bang for the buck.

AGP or PCI-e? If it's PCI-e, then look at the HD3850 or HD3870 instead. The 3850 beats the X1950XTX and trashes the 7950GT. Not bad for a $179 card.

If it's AGP, the X1950XT isn't worth the $230 IMO. It's overpriced, and has got slower ram than the PCI-e versions. In AGP, the X1950 pro or HD2600XT get my vote instead.

Why are you interested in a last generation video card?

I have a X1950GT.

If I was going to buy a card today it would be an ATI HD3850. You can get it for $179 on and it should easily beat out a x1950XT, runs cooler and uses a lot less power.

Why not nab a ATI 3850? I agree with rwayne. With the 3850 at 179.99...Kind of makes it hard to recommend a x1950 pro anymore. They overclock well too. Personally, I won't be recommending the x1950 pro unless the price drops even more. ATM...the 3850 is ideal...I would even recommend others to save up a little extra cash and nab it instead. Definitely the best bang per buck card atm.

HD3850 or HD 3870 for sure.. I got HIS X1950PRO and wish I could have waited three months to grab a 3850

$160 is a Helluva Deal. I read an article on last week that said the price of the HD3850 was going to drop in the next week or two. At the time I guessed it would drop to $159.99 (a $20 drop). It appears that may be happening now.
