The ATI is the lowest of all in clock speeds.

The HIS X1950 Pro is clocked higher than the review sites could take any of the other 1950 Pro cards.

These cards do not OC well. I read a lot of reviews and the memory on these cards are set to max at about 1400.
The core on any does not go higher than 621 if you are lucky enough to get a good card.
Its not the memory that the problem its the cooling on the rear of the card. There is a review that did a temp monitor and it got up to almost 126C back there. http://www.bjorn3d.com/Material/revi...s/img_0082.jpg

It is I think the chip next to the power connection, I would put a ramsink on whatever does not have one on the back though to keep it cool. This is why I think the HIS got a lot higher is due to it covers the whole PCB.

I ordered the Sapphire model, and it should be in the mail on Tuesday......reason: it's cheaper than the others, and I heard that the Accelero Coolor is overkill on the powercolor model, at least until 3rd party OCing applications support this card. When I get it and install, I'm going to post on Guru3d ATI tray tools section to see if Ray Adams (Moderator of this section and creator of ATI Tray tools) will update the app to support this card. He's usually pretty good for checking the posts and responding, so we'll see what's up.

The temps are much better on the Accelero model then all other cards, I think it even beats out the HIS version in temps. With have a total of 6 heatpipes (3 double sided) it does a great job. My card will be here tomorrow and I would like to compare temps with you over a night of gaming.

Also another benefit of the Accelero would be that they use MX-1 paste, it is fair for me to assume that all the coolers provided by Arctic to Powercolor have MX-1 on them which performs the same as AS5. Also when programs do support the x1950Pro it will be nice not to have to buy another cooler or really worry about my temps.

The best brand of 1950PRO is saving your money and getting a 7900GTO or just buying a 7900GT. It doesn't OC worth CRAP.

Yea dude that's cool...what games do you play? By any chance Battlefield 2142 or 2? I am DLing FEAR right now (cracked) shhhhhhhhh........also I have HL2 (no expansion), Quake 4 (cracked again), so let me know and we'll see what's up. I will also let you know which driver is better:6.10 or 6.11 beta, with the 6.11 Beta my score is 4528, but also keep in mind I'm at stock speeds (CPU, GPU, RAM)...the only thing aftermarket is my video card!

BF2142, Silkroad, FEAR Combat, Halo, and HF2. I will try and play a bit of them all tonight on the highest settings I can get.

EDIT: http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=384&card2=466 by looking at this the x1950Pro beats the 7900GT in just about everything (in benchmarks 7900 beats the x1950Pro by about a frame). And it doesnt OC very well now, but once ATi Tools supports it and some better drivers. Also in a few benchmarks the x1950Pro beat the 7950GT.

EDIT: Here is the heat issues shown in this review http://www.vr-zone.com/index.php?i=4190&s=6
