Take your gaming to the next level with the X1950 Pro-based video card from Asus! The 256MB of GDDR3 memory can handle anything you throw at it. CrossFire ready, this card begs for you to add its twin for even greater "pwning" opportunities. It has a PCI-e x16 connection for maximum data transfer from the system. All this power can run hot, or it would if it didn’t have Asus’ custom cooling solution with a heat pipe and extra fins to ensure maximum cooling.
Gaming is a great use for dual multiple screens. You can run the game on the main screen and have the Gamer OSD and Game FaceMessenger utilities open on the other. Gamer OSD lets you chat and manage your cards settings without having to exit the game-overclock on the fly for maximum control of your game play experience. Or you can use Game FaceMessenger for IM style in-game chats.
Sometims you want to watch movies, hook your HDTV to one of the DVI interfaces or use the adapter cable for component video connection. HDCP support ensures you can watch everything that’s out there. Or, if you’d rather watch the movie on your PC, the Splendid Video Enhancing Technology kicks in, enhancing color depth and intensity delivering a cleaner, clearer picture. See it all and have more fun than you can stand with Asus!
