I wish i could buy new, i can't work for another 9 months due to a car accident.
So i have to buy used at the moment, well... or wait ages and save up.
Glad to hear the card is overclockable. I like to OC and i'm also upgrading my CPU and Motherboard; E6300 and Gigabyte 965P-DS4. Then my spare parts are going into my HTPC.
awww well now i feel kinda bad that i kinda badmouthed your medium of purchase knowing that you've been in a car accident ><. I just reacted that way because earlier that day I'd seen a bad card that someone bought on ebay that was some damaged goods. hey whatever works, don't let my personal bias get in the way
Will have a read through the review in abit. The card manufacture of the 7900GS is Gainward Bliss and the 7900GT is Pine Tech XFX.
oh well if it is a Gainward 7900GS+ i've heard that they are basically 7900GT's although that might have been an AGP card I was thinking about (I dont know i can't remember stuff from 2 days ago at 1am!!). anyways if it is a 7900GS+ that might be a little bit better deal in terms of price/performance (although i heard they were very rare, I don't really know I live in the US and we don't have gainward over here so far I know.)
Thanks! You were not to know anyway, i don't exactly have it in my sig
Well now after reading everyones advice, i've changed mind again. I got outbid on the 7900GT which i was happy about and have obtained some more funds...
I found a Galaxy 7950GT for £150 - so i can't resist, ordered it yesterday and should have it before new year
I know Galaxy are not the best of makes. But to be fair i think they are very good value for money, my two 6600GT's have been fine so i'm contempt with the make. Also most other makes with the same spec are £50-100 more expensive. This one also comes with a Zalman cooler.
well im my personal experience the 7900gt is a nice card and overclocks very well mine is overclocked to 612/961 and if you want to push it more ive seen a lots of guides of how to voltmod and flash the 7900gt and reach the levels or near levels of the 7900gtx but i havent tried it personally so i cant tell about that , and about the 7900gs i havent tried it but i have heard that they are good overclockers too and well hope you get well and have luck with your choice!!!
