just a quick question. what was the point of starting this thread authority? seriously, lol, you asked a question, about 10 different people answered, and you went and ignored them all for no reason really, the x1950pro wasnt out of your budget and it is a far superior card, haha

oh well, hope you enjoy your new "card"
