7950GT can easily outperform X1950pro

I ordered a xfx 7950 GT before. I plan on doing the conductive pen modding that worked on my 7900 GS and put a vf-900 on it. I can probably hit 800 on the core but maybe 900 on memory with my copper vram cooling if I am lucky.

An open obox X1950XTX for $300 is a great deal !!! LOL

For $80 more you can get a new 8800GTS

and it is not an open box like X1950xtx
