This card is what I plan on getting soon. It's nvidia, though, so I'm not sure how it compares to the ATI you listed.

Excellent card its the one i have, i play Call of duty 2 and Battlefield 2142 at the highest settings with good FPS, and its silent in benchmarks the 7950GT scores slightly higher than ATI

I'd get the X1950Pro. At that price no other card can beat it, and you won't spend too much money on a dx9 card so you can upgrade later.

However, if you do have the patience, I would wait until the next batch of dx10 cards. I reckon the 8600 would outperform any dx9 card.

Doesn't the 320mb 8800GTS come out soon for $300? Thought that's what I heard somewhere around here.
