I'm thinking about a future build, somewhere next January, just throwing out some ideas, and the fact that I like to browse, so, would a 1950XTX be mid-grade by that time, or do you think it would still be useful...Just throwing out a hypothetical...

Im thinking of going X1950XTX Crossfire, just from the fact that DX10 cards are so incredibly power hungry.

It'd still be extremely useful, until games become DX10-only, which will take at least a year for the first DX10 cards.<br />
<br />
HrnyGoat, I would have to recommend a second x1900, not 2 1950s, as the price is about $600 difference, and the performance truly won't be a humongous difference.

</div>The reason I wanted to go for the X1950XTX is because of the better cooler and the fact that it uses less power.

Its an awesome card. And the cooler works a treat, keeps mine at 39 idle, 60 load with 1.500v on the core at 722/1071<br />
<br />
I can play BF2142 all high, 1280x1024 75hz, 4xAA, 16xAF and all the other fancy stuff and FPS never drops below 50 mostly staying in the 70-80 region and occasionally well over the 100's<br />
<br />
Super card

It will not be only a mid ranged card by then. It will still be one of the high-end cards considering it's monstrous power =) Definitely a good buy

Okay <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> Just checking :: places it back on the list of things to get with income tax...::<br />
<br />
Still waiting on processor though, AMD might pull through...
