    It's not a piece of ****, it's my piece of ****. The X1950PRO was 165$ for a ASUS brand, with a good heatipipe cooler. About 2 hours ago, it sold out haha.

    Nice system but if ur gonna get an X1950PRO, u will need at least a quality 450-500W PSU. That 300W one will simply blow if u try to use the card with it.
