All right. Isn't the 1950 better than the 1900? And how much do you think I could get for it? Should I keep it for another build?

The X1950 pro came in both AGP and PCI-e versions. It might actually work. That's irrelevant though, because:

The x1900 XTX is just an X1950 XT with underclocked memory. It's actually better than the X1950 pro, provided it has as much or more VRAM. Do you know what sizes they are?

x1900: 512 MB DDR3
x1950: 256 MB DDR3

I guess I'll just use the x1900 and then sell the other one..., but how much is it worth?
