Power Color X1950 XT

Conclusion:

If you are looking for performance under a $300 price tag, the Power Color X1950 XT is a video card that I suggest you to not pass by. As we saw in our benchmarks, the X1950 XT did very well against its main competitor and it smokes our two mainstream cards hands down. I was amazed how quiet the heatsink fan was. Even under a loaded condition, it was basically inaudible. With the ability to play all of today’s most popular video games at high frame rates, you’ll probably see your frag count increase. I never had a problem with jumpiness during my game play. The video quality was smooth at all resolutions, including a test at 1680x1050 (a resolution that OCC will be implementing in our benchmarks shortly to show how well video cards fare in a market where wide screen monitors are becoming more popular). One other find was that although the software drivers now come with the ATI overclocking utility, the card itself did not reach any rates worth talking about. I have found that with most of today's cards being at or near their max core and memory speeds, overclocking a video card is becoming a thing of the past.
