Default New Graphics Cards

With the release of the new graphics cards which ones are the best bang for your buck?

How does the new x1950xtx

compare to the 7950gt and gx2?

and is the 7900gs worth it?

well the 7900gt is stil a great card, the 7950 looks like a good deal, but we will have to hear from owner reports first . I personally think the 1950 is just too dam expensive

s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI

why not look at a 1900XT or XTX? Their good and they've decreased in price since the 1950 came out. And the 1950 is too expensive, specially since DX10 is comin soon.
