Yea thats why the Pro is cheaper.

Compare it to a card in its price range, like the X1950 XT and it gets beat down

IF your going to buy such a high end card though, you might want to wait for directX 10. If you buy this card now, your gpu will be signifigantly outdated in no time at all. DirectX 10 promises many new things. I would hate to see you spend so much money on a new gfx card and miss out on DX 10.

The X1950 Pro still gives the best performance for it's price range. It also runs cooler and has Digital PWM, unlike the 7950 GT which uses fugly-ass capacitors. It's also easily overclocked as well.

You could always wait for the R600. Owns the 8800 GTX.

and will probably cost a small fortune.
But as I said I'd go with the 8800GTS, (if you can afford it) pretty expensive but a great card.

i have an 8800GTS in my current system, and all i can say is all max settings and still have over 60 FPS in pitched combat! (not just small firefights, but big, large scale battles.)
