    Which one should I get? X1900 GT or X1950 Pro ???

    Im going to stick in another matching OCZ 512mb DDR400 very soon and Ive overclocked my Athlon 64 3000+ to 2.16GHZ so I think its time to get a cheap graphics card and do some gaming ;)

    Which one out of these 2 should I go for? :

    1) GECUBE X1950Pro 256MB DVI Crossfire ready DDR3 PCI-E : £127.94 inc VAT

    or

    2) Connect3D X1900GT 256MB GDDR3 dual DVI VIVO 256bit PCI-E : £114.94 inc VAT

    Right now the best bang for the buck for pretty much any GPU is the X1950PRO.
    Nothing can beat it.
    Plus you will be very happy with the performance.

    Yea, everyone is picking this card up.
    Its got a mid range card price, but is a higher end card.

    Anytime man.
    I had a similar dilemma.
    It was between the X1950PRO and the 7900GT.
    I was going to go with the PRO, but decided to ask for a better GPU for my b-day (instead of asking for this one for X mas).

    If you could wait (I doubt it since you do have a X600 :( ), then you might want to see what Nvidia will be releasing in Feb. or until ATI releases theirs in Jan.
