X1950XT. I would not go SLi or CrossFire with DX9 with DX10 cards out and 2nd generation ones coming out in 2008 (guessing). I'd get a good X1950XT so you can play Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Half Life 2: Lost Coast, F.E.A.R., Quake 4, Doom 3, and Prey. Then, I'd bump up to a 8800GTS/X or an R600 later on it like Q2'07.

I'd say X1900PRO to save a bit of money. Good enough card to carry you over.

LOL I think second gen will be way earlier than 2008. nVidia and ATI will go at each other's throat with DX10

Differences...

X1950XT - 256MB
7950GT - 512MB

Although the nVidia card has more ram, most games today don't utilize all of the memory, and with the 7950GT's core not being powerful enough to utilize all 512MB by running higher resolutions, it comes to a dilemma where the 512MB is pretty much useless.

X1950XT - 625/1800MHz
7950GT - 560/1450MHz

In the past clocks haven't defined the differences between ATI and nVidia cards, but it seems like they're beginning to use the same types of ways of manufacturing cards and clock speeds really do make differences and while they still aren't completely comparable you get an idea of how drastic an improvement you get with the higher clocks seeing as most ATi cards clocks are much higher than nVidia's.

X1950XT - $250
7950GT - $265

Obvious?

Okay. I think I have made my choice. I have been reading and reading and reading, and I think I will end up getting the X1950XT by Sapphire. I don't know where I am going to purchase it, but I will be looking around for a few days. Thanks for all of your help.
