I have now an ASUS 6800GT and wanted to know should I buy another one and make SLI or buy just one 7900GT ???

More about : asus 7900gt question

Whichever you like, just make sure if you go SLI you have a compatible MOBO and your PSU is a monster. If I could do it all over again I prob wouldve just done one 7900 gtx, after all the hassles of SLI it's not worth it in my book.

the 7900GTX or the x1900xtx is about 200 $ more than what I currently have...I have the a8n32sli deluxe from asus so sli workes...and a ASUS 360 W ...a AMD Athlon64 4000+ @ 2.8 GHz(280x10) on air...and 2x512 MB 426 MHz 2.0-3-3-5 1:1 one HDD and some neons...so I guess I'll be needing a better PSU even if I buy the 7900GT

A 360W PSU ? 8O
OH , Man ... You Should Change It , No Matter What You Will Buy ... Single 7900GT or 2x 6800GT ... Single 7900GT Need At Least A 400Watt PSU !! Dual 6800GT Eat 550Watt PSU !! But For The Topic , I Say Go For A Single 7900GT , It Can Easily OutPerform SLI 6800GT Even In SLI Supported Game Like Call Of Duty 2 :twisted:
Just Make Sure You Don`t Use 360W PSU For It...

Here Is The Benchmark

7900gt are extremely power efficient. They take much, much less than a 6800gt.

i saw you have an Leadtek® WinFast PX7800 GT...I wanna buy an ASUS...now do you think that it'll clock those frequencies ?

Yes, Why Not ? Asus Makes Very Nice Cards Out There ... But Hey I Have A 7800GT Not 7900GT , I Heard That 7900GT Series Is Much More OverClock`able Than 7800Series !!...
OK , If You Like ASUS I Think You Should Buy This
This Version Of ASUS Is OverClocked By Factory A LOT :twisted: !! (Memory Clock Is 1.45 From Standard 1.3)

There is a 7900gt with a zalman vf900 pre-installed coming out by Inno3d. Screw ASUS.

The Antec NeoHe 550watt psu, does a Superior job for providing efficient power the the components of your rig. I"d totally recommend it for SLI users, and power hungry PC's. He- High Efficiency, runs cool and quiet, despite only having a 80mm fan. :twisted:
Something that the experts would recommend!!

Asus have a few glitches with their 7900gt's. I would recommend the the EVGA of an XfX, both great performance and great warrenties, not to mention customer service :twisted:
Something the Sayans would recommend

If he can support a 6800gt, he can support a 7900gt.

holy crap what are you idle/load temps and what have you used to test stability?
May 5, 2006 8:50:24 PM

idle 60
full load 78 max 80 degrees after some many hours in games...
with case closed...tems drop about 10-15 degrees with case open...

I have this card for about 2 months...and I am not planing to let her celebrate the 3rd month in my possesion...

stability....well let's see every new game and every 3dmark from 2001-2006 a coulpe of times...am3...so...satisfied ?

hm, you idle at 60 degrees and load 80 and you get 450/1200? I'm idling at 47 right now and I can't go any higher. DoD:S crashes at that. That's most of what I play, and since I get 70+ average FPS, I can't complain. I dunno, I'll try it and see what happens. That's really odd. I also thought the AC outperformed the Zalman, but it might be case flow.
May 5, 2006 8:59:09 PM

case flow my @$$...I only have the ASUS TA210 with a modified front 120 mm fan...and 2x 80 mm fan...I had overclocked it to 450/1200 on stock but it reached 90 degrees in full load with case open... :twisted:

edit:also I have one of those socket fans...that blow air directly in the GPU fan
and the hot air is blown off the case by the ac silencer

i have 2 7900 gt in sli, they work great. i oc them to 540 and 775. was no hassle and it did cost more than one gtx but it is still faster than one. default 3d 06 marks were 6275 with a 3800+ oc to 2766.had to buy a better power supply ended up getting the liberty 620 by enermax.
good luck and cheers.
