Default Whats the better ATI 2k or 1k series? for me

I was wondering what was better in terms of price per performance the.

Radeon HD 2600XT 256MB
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100210L Radeon HD 2600XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR4 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

or

Radeon X1950XT
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100186L Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail

I guess budget wise i'm willing to spend both, but of course the cheaper is better if it can do some decent performance.

What I'm mainly planning to do with it is just gaming. Like the typical C&C, Stalker, Fear, WOW, CS, and etc. I know that one main difference is the DX10 capabilities. Not really looking too much into this for when Crysis or Bioshock come out because I will probably plan on getting the new nVidia 9 series (or whatever they're called). This is mainly just for a pretty good one right now to hold me over. And to keep as a side spare when I build a new comp after the price cuts in July and the new nvidia gpu. Thanks.
