    Actually, it'll run on medium-high at ~800x600 on my card.

    But by then I'll be running a X1950XTX, so no problems ;)

    X1950xt 230$

    WOW, the X1950XT is only 230$ now. And according to benchmarks theres barely any difference between this and the X1950XTX... Soon it'll drop to <200$, which'll be awesome! (And BTW I can't find any X850XT anymore :( )

    Nice specs, but let's wait for a newer, hopefully more power efficient revision ;)

    I just saw somewhere that ATI's R700 should run much cooler, and be cheaper to manufacture. Hmmm, a X3950XTX :p

    Wow, R600 isn't out yet and we're onto the R700... ;)

    If the X2900XTX is truly and really a lot faster than the 8800/8900GTX, I'm sure lots will buy it no matter how power-hungry it was. 240W it eats I believe? Hmm... Instead of upgrading my 480W Truepower II (Antec) (because it's perfectly good and stable), I'll instead go for a dedicated graphics power supply.

    I know this is an old thread, but while I was consulting it for stats about R600, I noticed that it has been brought up that the X1950XTX rivals the 8800GTS...

    I was wondering where this information came from, as a single 8800GTS/GTX are over 70% better than dual X1950XTXs according to benchmarks.

    The X1950 XTX may rival a 320MB Geforce 8800GTS if you use a smaller resolution like 1280x1024, because the later may be limited by the CPU.

    But if you game beyond 1280x1024, and use lots of AA & AF, then the 8800 series destroy the X1900 series.

    Oh... ok thanks for clearing that up wolf :) They both destroy my 7950 ;)
