Has the X1950XT replaced the 7600GT?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got a Sapphire X1950XT because I got a KILLER open-box deal on it for around $120. But now their normal ones are very cheap as well and it seems everyone is getting one. By far, they outperform ANYTHING in that price range, and they're monstrous overclockers.

It seems to me that the Sapphire X1950XT 256 has about replaced the 7600GT as the budget king GPU.

Discuss.

They can't be compared, because the 7600GT is sometimes $80 or less, while the X1950XT is much more.

It definitely has. The fact that it does not have DX10 matters little seeing as there are no DX10 titles out.

Edit: It's more of a mainstream card than a budget one (according to its price).

It wasn't always. My friend has a 7600GT from a year and a half ago when it was still popular, and it was probably the price then that the XT is now.
