    Hmm, I think crossfired 1950s would be as powerful as the GT at resolutions less than 1650x1050, and much less expensive....Don't base your decision on DX10, you can force all the DX10 effects in DX9 and it performs better

    Thank! I just notice DX9 seen lightly faster then DX10...

    Zotac 8800GT (512mb) look like a nice card and It comes in better then the 8800GTS cards (320MB & 640MB versions)

    Wow, you don't know how wrong you are. An 8800GT would murder an x1950 pro even in cross fire.

    8000 3Dmarks compared to 12000, but the latter probably has a much faster CPU. Buying another 1950s has a much better cost to performance ratio.

    ATI is coming out with the 3000 series cards very soon though, which should murder both

    The rumors say Hd3870 20% slower than 8800GT is entirely speculation as we don't see facts.
    From price, power & performance, HD3870 does look good.
