hmm thanks for all the opinions, If i had the extra cash for the 2900Gt I would go for it, but kinda need a card ASAP as my 6600Gt feels like its getting ready to go at any moment. Gonna miss it, been one of the most reliable cards ive ever owned. Who know might hang it on the wall. XD

Anyways More than likely ill be pickup up the H.I.S. 1950pro, hopefully they still have it in stock once my money gets transfered. Gonna be my first ATI card since my old 9250

Thanks again.
