a 1950pro will run you to about $150. it's an ok price/quality thing, but only if you're using it to wait until real DX10 cards are released. (and by real DX10 i mean cards actually tested in DX10)

that is kind of my plan at the moment. Do we know when Dx10 game and real hardware will be coming out? I am just wanting to beef up my X1600 because it is dated and has a very low frame rate on every game.

So i am definatly considering the x1950

What brand should i go for??

Thanks

I would go for 320Mb GTS, worth the cost, every penny
don't expect DX10 only games any time soon
