Just make sure that the Radeon will actually fit in your case, as it is a big card (look at how far the fan extrudes upward from the card).
It's actually not that big. The X1950 Pro uses digital PWM instead, so you don't see any traditional caps. That's how they got the cooler to cover almost the entire PCB. It looks like it's long, but it's not. Also, that's because he chose an HIS card. Alot of their coolers use double slot, but the reference cooler is actually single slot.
The performance also owns the 7900 GS. Hands down.
