It's meant for computer-assisted design (ie. 3D modelling, video editing, graphic design, etc) gaming cards are not particularly good at this stuff.

Are we sure about the X1950GT? The X1950Pro is simply the same card but with a slightly higher clock frequency. (GT = 500/600 Pro = 600/700).

So now that ive overclocked my GT to match Pro speeds - a 100Mhz increase in core and mem clocks - it beats the..

7900GT 512MB
8600GTS
X1800XT 512MB
7900GT 256MB
X1800XT 256MB

Impressive
