The X1950PRO wins this one. Maybe not by much.

^yes the 1950pro is a bit better but if you plan on upgrading from it later go with an evga 7900gs so you can do the step up program

PowerColor ATI Radeon X1950 Pro Extreme SILENT Heatpipe 256MB

vs

Sapphire ATI Radeon X1950 Pro 256MB GDDR3

is it worth the extra money for the extreme version

one has a fan and one doesn't... no need to double post, just to bump. get what you feel YOU want to get.. you can do the same research, on the same sites that we can... we have shown them to you. if your wanting someone to tell you to get something then:

get a x300 and have a nice day.
