    go for a cheap x1950gt (OC to a pro and further) ...its cost around 110 bucks after MIR...then save the rest until prices drop and more cards come out.

    I vote X1950GT or if you can find it for little difference 1950Pro, then slap a VF900 on it. Doing that will make it worth a reasonable amount even when the ATi DX10 parts come out,

    After the R600s hit the market? Probably. I wouldn't touch a sapphire X1950XT with a 10 foot pole and someone else's arms holding the pole. I had two of them...both died. Every ATI lover on the forum blamed every other part of my computer for their untimely deaths...but the same system has been kind to my 8800GTS.

    Didn't hurt the ATI card I had sitting in it while I waited for the X1950XT to come back off of RMA. It is the devil, but the X1950XTs killed themselves.

    though the 1900gt is a tad faster than the 1950gt, but it cannot do crossfire.
