I think the PNY 7900GS, can compare to the X1950GT. It's cheaper, and a great overclocker.

If you were considering, spending that much for an X1950XT 512MB, then definitely get the EVGA 8800GTS 320MB instead.

the 8800GTS cost too much for me

Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H195PRF512DDN-R Radeon X1950PRO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail

Is this card better than the X1950XT?

The number of pixel pipelines a graphic card has, is the biggest factor, in determining how well a graphic card will perform. So the more the better.

Overclocking is pushing the card beyond it's stock speeds.

The X1950PRO is weaker than the X1950XT, as it only has 36 pixel shaders, compared to the XT's 48.

I knew the 7900GS was Nvidia. I just threw that out, as another option.
