Sounds like a bit much considering a person can pick up either an 8800GT or an HD 3870 on sale for less than that.

I would not spend more than $100 on a x1950XT. In all seriousness it wouldn't even be worth that.

A 9600GT would run circles around it for a fraction of the price...

I just picked up a Sapphire X1950XT 256MB with box and all for 90.00 on a local used site......Id say that is a fair price.

thx for the infos, as far as i know, X1950XT/X is the most powerful card with passive cooling (artic accelero), correct me if im wrong.

You can just stick a passive cooler on yourself.

Just grab a 9600GT and the Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Rev. 2. It should still be cheaper than a X1950XTX, and a ton better.

This is the heatsink: Arctic Cooling

You can get a 3850 for $99 these days, don't waste your time with 19xx

Yeah, maybe $90-100.

I sold my 10-month old ASUS X1950 Pro to a friend for $100 on February. But I also upgraded her PC (mobo+cpu+psu+mem) for no charge. So I guess that's sort of the payment. I got to keep the rebates too :).
