Same as ATI Radeon X1950?

  1. Hello everyone, i have an AGP Mobo, and don´t have plans to upgrade yet, i saw some great deals on Radeon X1950, but i see that there´s new ATI Series (HD 2000, HD 3000 series) and they still make the AGP option.

    So the question is: which of this new series would be equivalent to an X1950, i see that this new videocard series are even cheaper than X1950´s, and they require less watts and they heat less. But, do anyone of them deliver the same of an X1950?

    I really don´t mind about Directx version, the games that i want to play still use directx9, and i have windows xp.

    Should i buy an X1950 or an ATI new series, and which one if this is the case?

    Thank you guys!

    No videocard (it fried, was an ATI X1300)
    550 Watt PSU.

    the HD3850 AGP would be a great card if u have enough PSU. and I am talking about the wats it supplies.
