I had planned on getting one until I was able to grab an 8800 as a deal price and now im glad I did.
Indeed, but you need to remember something: It's mid range gaming. I'd compare it to a 7600GT. The cores are really similar, but that's because it's like an improved version of a 7600GT. Comparing to an X1950 isn't a good comparison. You compare mid range with mid range.
Imagine a FX5200 to a X1950...seriously.
