Sometime in the next month.

But right now the X1950 PRO STOCK

After Overclocking, The XFX 7900GS. Or even the eVGA one is great as I've took mine from to 615/835 on stock volts.

This has been a huge debate for as Long as the X1950PRO came out. Overall the x1950PRO is worth the extra money you pay for usually when it comes to a standard 7900GS. I don't know how much farther that XFX version will overclock than something liike my standard as it's already at 600/800
