x1950xtx or 7950gx2?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
the nvidia is faster, but some application dosnt support sli yet, well.. but is fastest.

the ati comes with great collors and with nice stuff around it..


i own an 7900gtx..and you may ask why i change.. because i can sell the gtx and buy a brand new x1950xtx for the same money ..and get extra quality.. or i can put 50 bucks more and get the 7950

i must mention that i want to use with my conroe e6700 and p5b deluxe mobo (bad for sli/crossfire ), so i am left to use only 1 pcix16 and want to get out most of it

i do video editing,and web design, and seeing the collors clearly is a must (nvidia lets me down here).. also to mention that i use sony xblack as monitors.

well some pro and cons.. and realy keep in mind that i want quality output .. not 10 extra crapy fps

ATi also has brighter more vivid cloros. Yes?

Ati always get my vote unless nVidia out does ATi in the quality factor.

The 7950GX2 is a powerfull card no doubt....but with so much power, you'd want to be able to use AA and HDR at the same time. But you can't. The slightly less powerfull x1950xtx has the technology to do that.....plus noticeably better image quality.

x1950xtx has my vote

Here's the 4th Vote for the X1950XTX.

I also like the idea of HDR and AA, plus the image quality.

X1950XTX FTW.

If you can't use HDR and AA at the same time, who cares how powerful the card is? Once you get past a certain point, additional framerate is meaningless. It's all about the eye-candy in high end cards, and the X1950XTX has it all over the 7950GX2.

With the 91.XX drivers, HDR and AA work fine on my machine. I think the game developers still have to tune their games for Nvidia chipsets and the HDR+AA thing though. Also, Nvidia has a "vibrance" setting few people pay attention to. Crank up the Vibrance in the color control panel and the rendering becomes very beautiful.
