LOL

You should honestly look around newegg.com, you can get some really great deals on there if you are looking for a new GPU, but yea, I guess the x1950 was a fail when manufactures decided to save them selves a few cents worth in copper....

Lol ya, definitely. I just returned from the store. I got an nVIDIA GeForce GT 240 with 1GB DDR3. Got it for ~50$. Not bad, I guess. Hopefully now I can install it without having to reformat my computer. I have a feeling that I'm going to screw up the whole uninstalling old drivers and installing new drivers deal.
