Pros: This card can OC to stock X1950XTX speed easy. 650/2000mhz But Still Only 256MB!! Dont think any under $xxx cards can beat this one right now.
Cons: 256MB maybe cant handle most the new games at 1600x1200 Resolution with max AA + AF. For Sure cant handle 1920x1200 with MAX AA + AF.
Overall Review: If you using 1280x1024 Resolution or lower, This is the very fast card for you for this price.
Pros: Run 27c lower than my stock cooler on my Q6600, OC my CPU to 3.65ghz for 24/7 use and 100%stable. Fully Load temp under 55c with OCCT or Prime96 Test. MB: Formula Rampage X48 Ram: DDR2 1016 G-Skill. Vcard: 9800 GX2
Cons: Take me few Hr to set it up
Overall Review: This is the Best Water cooler you can get for under $200. You get the OverKill Performance and the Looks.
Better than Sapphire1
Pros: HIS X1950XT better than Sapphire X1950XT. I use to have the Sapphire X1950XT and now i change it to HIS. Why better? temp on Load about 3-4c lower.Stock cooler can OC to 702/2034mhz. Temp on load about 80c. the Sapphire one on load about 83-84c.
Cons: None for now.
Overall Review: Also HIS come with more Software. When i got my HIS X1950xt it was same Price as the Sapphire. This Card Eat any Game on 1600X1200 or Lower RES with All MAX sitting. 3dmark05 easy to get 12-13k after OC. 3dmark06 about high 6000.
