What card should I buy?? Help plz! - Page 2

Good choice, the X1950 XTX is a much better buy then a 7950 GX2, and it can do SM3.0 HDR + AA unlike any nVidia card.

Well, I've allready been bashed by a few people on some other sites for buying this card , as they are telling me that I'm stupid for not just buying an X1900XT, because the 1950 is simply an "enthusiasts card" (whatever that is supposed to mean). That the only real bonus of the 1950 is the GDDR4 Memory, and that is has the same exact gpu and setup as the 1900. Also, I will not be able to install any of the newer CCCenters, or the newer drivers, and will only be able to use what comes on the installation disc.
My reply to that was simple, ITS A NEW CARD!!! Of course there are going to be problems at first, especially with the new GDDR4 memory! I was told that the 1950 is the ONLY card using that right now, and ATI is still tweaking the bugs to turn them into bonuses. I dunno, what do you guys think?

I would have personally gotten a X1900XT(X), simply because it's cheaper and the X1950XTX does not offer an advantage, except for the DDR4 RAM.

The X1950XTX is an excellent card, super fast, but for me personally not worth the extra $100 or so over the X1900XT.

However, the decision is a close one, and if I'd have the money, I'd easily be lured into buying the X1950XTX (I did buy my X1900's when they were a heap more expensive after all... LOL)

Good buy! Don't worry what others tell you, and enjoy the card.
