X1950XT and 7950GT Users

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a new system real soon, as indicated in another thread. While I've generally settled on the config (E6600, 2 GB RAM, etc.), I'm still undecided on the GPU, with the two contenders being the X1950XT and 7950GT (both at 512MB); note that I plan on using FS9 for the foreseeable future. If users of these cards could report on their experience (performance, image quality) and speculate on what I can expect in FS with these cards, that would be great!Thanks in advance!Nicolas in CYOW

I have the 7950GT. It's a power-hog (Im have a 650W PSU). It's not the "dual head" card that is the substitute for SLI. I like it, I run 1680*1050 on a wide-screen and 1280*1024 on a second standard monitor with no concerns.While I get additional texture performance, it does nothing to increase fps in FSX. I think we are still at least a year away from hardware that will really show how FSX shines :)Bruce.
