7950GT KO

I've got this card on the way from newegg. I'm just wondering where or why there isn't much info about these cards. Are they 'too new' or just not popular. Reason I choose this card is because well i'm building a new computer from the ground up. I'm not waiting on Dx10 or vista (because I think first gen 10 cards will be very expensive...we'll see. Heck I can always throw it the 2nd puter if I get a dx10 card later anyway)

Anyone else own this card? How does it preform on Oblv, HL2, and some other 3d heavy hitters? When I look on the VGA charts I only see GX2's.

  1. Check http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2833&p=1 for benchies. Personally I like the X1900XT 256MB better, it has similar performance and is a little cheaper (plus HDR+AA works only on ATI).
  2. I guess I should have done more homework before the purchase. Anyway the extra ram looked appealing to me in the long run. We'll see. When I get my goods in I'll post my findings here. I'm putting together a:

    ASUS P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP
    2 Gigs of DDR2 800 Ram
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz
    eVGA 512-P2-N635-AR Geforce 7950GT 512MB
    *and other various pieces of hardware

    I'm not really an overclocker but i'm going from a 2.8 P4 and an ATI 9800. Should be fun building another computer - its been quite a while!
  3. Wow got my setup working

    142 FPS solid as a rock with everything up all the way in Half life 2 - lost coast
    Oblivion runs well also - don't have any formal FPS numbers though
