Buying new gfx card.

Just wanted some opinions...

Well im planning to buy a new card, from my existing ATI X800GTO2 to a ATI X1950Pro, im thiking of buying the HIS one?
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=119540

I have £150 to spend? Any ideas?

Im not liekly to have a dual-gpu set-up anytime soon... So this seems a good option, even though i have an nForce4/Sli board.... Better than the 7900's?

Any comments, Much appreciated

Cheers, Abdul!

You -always- seem to misspell one word in your posts, Mr Abdul.

You know I still <3 U.

And Favu, I <4 U.

But yeah, seems like a good option.

Unless someone has something better.

Go for it! <4

For a few more pounds you can get an x1950xt 256meg, it has 48 shaders instead of that pro's 36, and runs at full xt speed the only draw back is it has half the ram of the normal xt, which DOES hurt it in some benchmarks quite abit.

Its a little out of your range for now tho, http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/119729

Yeah, if you can afford an X19 series, go for it. If you do want an nvidia, look at the 79 series. If you want to spend a bit less, a 7600GT is a good compromise.
