Been keeping an eye on this card for a while and today it has dropped to a total of £79.86 (going through 'Google Checkout).

* ATI Radeon X1950 PRO - 580MHz
* 256MB-256bit 8 channel GDDR3 memory - 1.40GHz
* 36 Pixel shader processor
* Ultra-threaded SM 3.0 Engine
* HDCP Ready
* Crossfire READY

Set my heart on thew 512MB version now though (which hasn't seen a price drop yet). :(

Should be a nice addition to all those DELL 520s. :)

On the Dell E520's Do I need to up the PSU for this card to work or will it work with the standard?

At the moment I have a 7600GT is this card better or should I wait for a DX10 card & get a new PSU ?
#2
Not too much difference between your 7600GT and 1950Pro - the 1950Pro is certainly faster, typically by about 50%, but personally I'd wait a while yet and get a DirectX 10 card in a few months time. See here for some benchmark comparisons.

Unless you're finding your 7600GT really underpowered, I'd wait at least 6 months before upgrading yet, by which time 8800's and 2900's should be a lot cheaper.

Good price for X1950 Pro though ;-)

wowow, price is dropping fast..................

for the dell E520, u either need a new psu with molex connector, or get yourself a sata to molex connector

i bought this @ £98 and its a cracking card!!!

runs all my games 100%

I think the Dell PSU is rated at 305W, which is pretty low for powering a high-current card like the X1950PRO. Looking around the web it seems a similar setup typically requires around 220W when at load, which would suggest the PSU would have adequate power. However, add a bit more ram and a few bus powered USB devices and you might find the PSU driven dangerously close to its limits (which causes a drop in efficiency and thus an exponential rise in heat...)

Interesting... ;-) I wonder where a 8600GT will come in that chart! :)

I got 3944 on 3DMark06 with the 7600
Which is ok. I think i'll wait for the batch of DX10's cards to get released and drop before buying a new card + psu

Nice, crossfire time! :)

Would be nice to provide a link.

Yea, I am getting a new SD37P2 shuttle system in the next couple of days and I really want to get two of these and run them in cross fire to replace the 7600GT it is coming with :roll:

Surely at £80 these are worth the upgrade from a 7600GT ?? I have to admit I partly just want to upgrade the 7600GT before I even have the system purely because I feel dirty at the though of having a Nvidia card! :-D

Atleast if I buy ATI I am partly supporting AMD after cheating on them with a Core2 shuttle :w00t:

Why should you care about them?? They won't care about you!

Lexeus - don't really its worth an upgrade myself. Yes, they are £80, but that is about right for a card 30% - 50% better than a 7600GT (which can be had for £60). Don't get me wrong, its a cracking price, but I don't believe such a marginal upgrade is really worth it. Wait a bit then get an 8800GTS or a 2900XTX when they are a bit cheaper - will typically be on par with a CrossFire 1950 setup yet far less taxing on your Shuttle PSU (and it will run cooler...)
#12
wish this was the same price for the AGP version

sniff :(

This deal makes me feel depressed about having sent two E520's back to Dell.

The PoV 7600GT would be good enough for most people on here, but this is an excellent deal for those who want more from their games.
#14
I have had this card for 2 days and have been playing cs source and dod source maxed out. I also tried the C&C Tiberian Wars demo and ran that full wack, great card will last me a while until a reasonable DX10 card is released probs a years or so.
#15
Is it noisy? Does the fan run all the time or just under load?

i have the x1950gt one.

its quiter than my old sapphire 9550 agp card, but ive seen quieter cards about.

the pro is basically the gt but you can overclock it.
#17
My card is silent, I cant hear it whatsoever really even during a gaming session.
#18
I am really in a dilema! My E520 is so quiet that I do not really want to increase the noise level at all if it can be helped. But I've jut bought MS flight sim X and would like it to be displayed as well as possible so thus far I've been searching for passively cooled cards - GeoForce 7600 GS - is one that I've had an eye on. The thing is once bought - a card with a fan - if it's noisy then I'm stuck with it. If anyone can recommend a passively cooled card that would perform well enough for flight sim i would be really grateful.

I had the "noisy" PoV 7600GT. The noise didn't bother me much, only really noticeable due to how silent the E520 is. There are much more annoying noises out there than the ones fans make when spinning...and it isn't like most graphics card fans are even loud enough to take away from gaming and movie watching!

Also, Ebuyer seem very easy to return stuff to - They quickly gave me a RMA number via their website AND offered what looks to be like free collection for my opened PoV 7600GT. Why not simply return it the X1950 if you find you can't live with the fan noise?

I have an XFX 7600GT XXX which has a fan but is pretty quiet, even when playing games.

Have a look at this one, I think this should run flight sim, I'm pretty certain its the Fatality 7600GT which is decently factory OC'd:

At 90 quid delivered (Google checkout) it seems a good price but be warned it might take up one of your PCI slots ... yet its a BIG improvement over a 7600GS! Check out this review:

Hope this helps :)
