I know, took me almost 2 years myself. I misread hi post, i thought he already had the x1950pro. Yeah it is a good card indeed.

When new cards come out, old cards are discontinued.

I was referring to the HD2900 and supposed high end ATI's that were supposed to be AGP,since according to AMDATI AGP bus could handle it.
