I think we should wait a bit for the ATI's lower priced DX10 GPUs.As Nvidia has already planned to provide us a $ 100 DX 10 card, ATI will not seat idle too.They r going to have such cards for sure.I prefer to wait for the lower priced DX10 cards.They r not the performance powerhouses but future proofing is also something that should counted.

If you are not planning on using Vista and since it fits your budget, go for the faster of the two, the X1950XT.
