    7950GX2 HANDS DOWN. It has 2 GPUS on one board and demolishes the 1950 by a LONG shot.

    7950GX2's or 7950GT's?
    Better than both IMO, because no one needs that mcuh power and it is dumb to have a dual GPU solution right now. Unless it is Dual 8800.

    The 8800GTS should beat dual 7950 cards (GX2 or GT).

    And a X1950XTX should beat a GX2 in most games, unless you want to game @ 2048x1536 8X AA resolution.

    if your in the hunt for a vid card i would hold off till the dx10 cards are out in full swing, but out of those 2 the 7800gtx2 my personal opinion

    Actually I just checked some charts and the GX2 wins some and the x1950xTx wins some.

    yes 2 are better than one, but at the cost it shows? the dual gpu's are still just getting you by. id wait or buy the 8800, as while you are enjoying playing all the DX9 games at full blast with the 8800, you are essentially sitting pretty when DX10 is more mainstream, oh dont forget that the 8800 is SLI ;) even better

    Yeah, but he'd need a 1kW PSU for two 8800 GTX's lol :)

    I'd choose a 8800 GTS card, or if you can't afford it, the X1950XTX would be great too.

    I have a 7950 GX2 and my Father has an 8800. In most of the games currently out witht he exception of a couple they are pretty evenly matched. The scores on 3D Mark don't differ a great deal.

    However when it comes to DirectX 10 games the 8800 will be in a league of it's own.
