it's good card... but not much faster than a GT... it's just an overclocked GT... you can OC the GT and get the same thing...

they look about the same to me, but it's your choice... as I stated before... that little bit of difference isn't going to be noticed anyway...

look at the specs

The Gainward 7950GT has clock speed of 580MHz and memory speed of 1.5 GHz

The XFX 7900GT has clock speed of 470MHz and memory speed 1.37 GHz

So, there is a big difference

Yes the 7950GT is better than x1950pro

ok, it's still not going to be seen to the naked eye... yes it will get better FPS, and better bench marks, but will you be able to SEE a 5-10, maybe 15 FPS difference when you playing a first person shooter, or RTS game??? Probably not... and would it be worth the money, that is up to the person who is buying it???

I understand the card is better, and benchs better, yada, yada...

timblanchard, if your that unsure of what you want then stick with what you have... listening to us ramble on and on about the same thing is getting old and so is this thread to be quite honest.

Sorry to b**ch and go on, but dang... you can do the same research we can and it looks to me that very few people here have replyed to your posts, and it's all the same people.
