Excellent price for a 1950 Pro - anyone know how noisy this is likely to be?
#2
Judging by the size of the fan I'd guess it would be quite noisy, but you could always get an aftermarket cooler for it. Its only a few ££ more than a silent (heatpipe) X1650 would be so I'm voting hot...
#3
oh for the love of god why can't I find a discounted AGP version of this card anywhere, months I've been looking, month's I tell you...sniff :*(

not fair, going off to sulk now :(
#4
For the price difference could you not afford a nice new PCI-E motherboard?
#5
it's not just the motherboard you need though when upgrading from the AGP format, I'd need a new CPU, new RAM and then the video card on top...hence the big sigh :(
#6
I know what you mean Mumjit I have the AGP version of this card in my system and I paid £140 for it a few months back...

But anyone wanting to upgrade that has a pci-e MB could do a hell of a lot worse than this card for almost half what I paid and thats with next day delivery aswell...:thumbsup:
#7
agreed crazylegs it's a great card at a great price. Can I ask if the fan on you're AGP version is very noisy when it's maxed out and if it gets extremely hot? I was looking at the HIS and Sapphire versions before but will investigate this Jetway one now if you recommend it!
#8
Building a new system and sort of stuck between the x1950 and the geforce 8600 GT. Which would be the most future proof when teamed up with core2duo e6750 ?

Is either of these way better than the other ?

Cheers,
Fishy
#9
Just a warning that the memory/GPU clocks on this card do not appear to run at full Pro speeds. It is still good value, just slightly less powerfull than a "real" X1950 Pro
#10
I presume you would be paying a lot more for the 8600GT?
#11
This performs better than 8600GT in DX 9, though the 8600gt can pull off DX 10 it will struggle in higher resolutions.
#12
how does this compare to a 6600gt? would it run crysis?
#13
I have to say that Jetway cards are not decently built. I will never consider them, even at this price.
#14
how does this compare to a 6600gt?


It doesn't...This card would chew the 6600gt up and spit it out for the rubbish...:)
#15
Yeah be paying more for the 8600 GT but is it worth that little bit more or will that be trash at dx 10 anyway making it worthless ?
#16
Great card... shame about that noisy looking fan tho, would love a passive equivalent :)
#17
8600GT isn't that special - this card will outperform it on pretty much all current games, you get more for your money buying last-generation parts.

russ - high-end cards generally dissipate 75W+ of heat (as much or more than your CPU) which generally rules out passive cooling. Many models come with aftermarket coolers (Ice-Q etc) which have larger fans thus run quieter. However, you can get many mid-range passively cooled cards (8600s, 2600s etc).
#18
crazylegs, great post, voted hot, are you a drunkdragon?
#19
I hate the way it says in the post, 'Crossfire/SLI will lead to a massive increase in perfromance'. Its complete tosh.

Other than that great find, look for GPU coolers on scan.co.uk :)
#20
Will this work in the Dell Dimension E520 1.8GHz Duo Core (recently advertised on this site) - I know the computer has a PCI express slot but I heard that some of these graphics cards can blow the pixels on the monitor?

Any help would be grateful

Thanks
#21
Sorry, blow the pixels?
#22
Blow the pixels :-D Nope, they might blow the PSU (power-supply) though, it really isn't designed for high power graphics cards. You could upgrade that though...
#23
8600GT can be had for £68 pounds delivered.
Uses alot less power than this card, is alot more quieter and has a smaller footprint.

But

1950Pro for this price is a very good deal.

I recently bought the 8600GT for £68, and if the 1950Pro was available at similar prices, i would be hard pushed to decide between them.
suspended#24
or if you have 2 molex (4 pin) plugs you could use an adapter

made by hiper so should be reliable - though voltage drop might be an issue?

Misco have the XFX 8600GT XXX for £76 inc postage here http://www.misco.co.uk/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=282909&sourceid=2004

The XXX means it's been overclocked basically, but i've heard that the 8600 series in general are crippled by the speed of their ram.
#27
cold toast

yes, because Crysis is meant to be very scalable for lower specs, a bit like Far Cry was.

Just don't expect to run above medium settings and effects without dx10, 2gb RAM, decent dual core cpu, etc.

Out of Stock at Ebuyer at the moment, but they usually have good supply of this item. The 8600GT at stock speed is slower than the 1950 pro but it is said that the 8600GT is very overclockable allowing it to surpass the 1950pro in terms of speed whilst still offering a lower energy consumption overall.
I got mine yesterday. Should have my new machine up and running by weekend.

This performs better than 8600GT in DX 9, though the 8600gt can pull off DX 10 it will struggle in higher resolutions.

Anyone thinking of buying one of the 8600GTs because it offers DX10 support should look at the latest edition of Custom PC magazine.
They tested a couple of games with DX10 using top range cards and even they absolutely sucked in performance terms. The 8600GT probably wouldn't even get out of the starting blocks in DX10 games.

Went for this, thanks.

But how many DX10 games are out there anyway? I'd be struggling to name more than a few and I dont see the situation changing much by the year end.

A whole new range of cards will be here at the time of when DX10 games are in their plenty, at which point you would be upgrading.

I read about it in the magazine, but this is the article from their website:

Well I got mine installed today, and its great that I can play GTR2 at 1600x1200 nice and smooth but the thing is damn loud! Kind of negates any saving when you have to buy a £20 replacement cooler :whistling:
#35
What memory and cpu have you got Layzee? =)
#36
E4300@2.5Ghz and 2Gig of ram
#37
Cheers =)
#38
I brought a Sapphire RADEON™ X1950 XT for £92 quid on ebay =).
#39
And i'm glad I did.
