The X1950XT is a decent overclocker- it can be easily pushed to XTX speeds. The X1900GT is a good overclocker.

Yep and the original X1900GT was a monstrous overclocker. The Rev 2. that is on newegg for cheap can be overclocked to fast Rev 1. speeds.

Also yes the Rev 2 X1900GT has 12mhz faster core and 60mhz faster memory than the X1950GT.

You mean $149 without MIR

I'm not a fan or MIR's anyway
Thats you but you are not the one who is going to buy it

In DX9 when both are overclocked the results are close but the 8600GTS wins synthetic benchmarks while the X1950PRO usually beats out the 8600GTS in actual games, even when they are both overclocked.
How do you know that ? Did you benchmark the two video cards by yourself ?

I think many of the people who own 8600GT and GTS will disagree with you

Just read this post from a guy who owns 7900GS, 8600GT and X1950pro

In DX10 i will bet you don't even think about turning on the DX10 features because then the X1950PRO will kill the 8600GTS with FPS...
Depends on the game

You need to check the benchmarks for BioShock in DX9 and DX10. They performs almost the same in DX10 and DX9 modes

And who cares about DX10 anyway ? I didn't tell him to get 8600GTS because it has DX10

actually a 7900GT KO which is overclocked more than a regular 7950gt.. and according to it... the 8600gt is pretty decent...

LOL

I was talking about X1950GT, not X1950XT

The difference between XT and XTX is only 25GHz in the clock speed. So, I'm not surprised that that it can easily reach XTX speed.

8600GTS can overclock up to 1GHz if you voltmod it

You were talking about all of the X1950 series, of course encompassing the X1950XT...
