8800 GTX - the X1950 can't utilize DirectX10, so Crysis and other DirectX 10 games wouldn't be in all their glory.

Other than that though, the performance would be close. The Crossfire would be a little bit faster though.

Difference between DX9 and 10:

DirectX 9:


DirectX10:


As you can see, there's quite a difference. DirectX10 comes very close to actually looking real.

I'm waiting to see how much the R600 (X2800) is going to kick ass.
