I'm just pondering which one to buy, any suggestions?

Thanks :lol:

I prefer the first one 'cause it got lots of pixel pipelines, just like what the expertise have said " the more the pixel pipelines the better".

Are you kidding? At least we understand you're not an expert.

Nvidia spies!

I do own Nvidia cards...I must be one. :(

I too own an Nvidia card... and I praise them for their performance, however, I do not blindly follow brand. If the X1800 is better performance than 7800GTX, then I buy ATI.

No, you're not just like me. An X1800 XT will beat a 7800 GTX 256 in nearly every game, no matter how many pixel pipelines it has.

Well, if you don't like it I could edit it to "That or you're stupid", which you're rapidly turning out to be.

My specs are:

Athon 64 3500+
ASRock DualSATA2
1Gb Corsair

I ran a 7800 GT and got 2489 in 3DMark06
Running the x1800 XT got me 2499.

Is the 3500+ fast enough to run a x1800? I'm not sure it is as the upgrade only yielded a 10 point gain.

I'd go for a 7800 GTX anyday.... :)

i believe ur system is strong enough not to limit the video card.

3dmark06 is synthetic. i mean it can give u an idea about the power of the card but it is not real life. that is if u are not playing 3dmark. :D 

my personal opinion is that ati x1800xt is better than 7800gtx but not by much. i personally like ati but recently i bought a nvidia card because it is superior in that class, that is lowend. i went from r9000 to r9200 to r9500 softmoded to r9700 and than i bought the leadtek 6200 agp card wich can be modded to 6600 and can easily be overclocked very much getting it close to the performance of 6600gt making it a middle range performance. :) 

let's get back to our discussion. i believe in using raw power the smart way and that is what ati is doing. now i believe the discussion is chainging because x1900xtx is here and levels everything in its path, including the highly overclocked and virtual video card that 7800gtx512 is. :D

Go with the 7800 GTX the speed is good and sli > crossfire. The 1800 xt might be a little faster but not by much. Also the drivers for ATI seem bloated. Plus if you ever want to try a diffrent OS rather than Windows ATI's drivers suck even more. Anywho my two bits. Whatever card you go with you should be happy.

the os thing is true. ati support in linux is very poor compared to nvidia but i believe u won't buy such a card to play quake3 on linux. :) 

also agree with the fact that the card are almost on par regarding the performance and they both deliver plenty of power but i still prefer ati.:)

If the system doesnt bottleneck, then its cause the 06 version is badly nV biased.

I'd believe that.

when did you learn to post like that... did your stupid dog taught you...

What does that mean? That it bases its ratings on Pipelines?
