This edition of Sapphire Radeon X1950 pro has 256 bit right?..I would kill myself If I would buy a videocard with 128 bit..This is only disadvantage of directcanada, that they don't show the technical information of the item that you want to buy.

It sucks that it was out of stock. DirectCanada's payment methods are PayPal, Visa Master Card and Amex

Hey mate.

IMO, and others my differ, the Nvidia cards series are very, very good at pumping out frames. If you want to run the latest and greatest FPS with best possible frame rate go Nvidia.

ATi on the other hand is very, very good at making a quality image with a decrease in frames.

I have always found that ATi rendered graphics look sharper and smoother compared to Nvidia, whilest Nvidia always gave me a better frames per second score.

As I said, thats just my opinion. I would whole heartedly recommend the ATi card over the Nvidia card.

It would be nice if all vendors displayed the SKU# for the products, then you could tell for sure if they are the exact same product and not a different revision or something.

silverstone tj04 instead of antec solo, 7900gs instead of x1950pro, and I forgot to add the thermal paste to the order (arctic silver5) ..
