My plan was origionally to get an 8800gts, but i have to buy my own car, as well as insurance and all the fun things that go along with it. And im shooting for a 98 camaro z28, so every penny i can save counts. And i'd like a silent card so i can leave my computer on overnight for folding, and that leaves extra room in my budget to possibly fit in a q6600 later on.

For a card to be that much faster while being cheaper as well I consider it destroying something.

7950GT OC cost $149 only after rebate
Newegg.com - BFG Tech BFGR7950256GTOCE GeForce 7950GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 OC HDCP Video Card - Retail


And saying that X1950XT completely destroy 7950GT is an exaggeration

From these benchmarks I can say that X1950XT is about 15% faster, but 15% is not a lot in my opinion

I hate MIR and most people do. Toms hardware isn't the most reliable source really since thye don't overclock things and other things. 15% for the same price without the MIR that will dissapear soon since BFG always has really crazy MIR.

Also Like I said it all varies because look at 128-x968 with no AA and HDR. The X1950XT is about 70% faster outside, not that either are playable rates but i'm just saying.
