another Graphics card dilemma! Tags: Nvidia Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: January 15, 2007 1:17 PM in Graphics & Displays Share freak1982 January 15, 2007 12:42:28 PM Simple really Want to upgrade my 6800GS, been thinking of it for ages and investigating new cards. £211 from Scan - XFX 7950GT XXX version. £170 from Scan - MSI 7900GTO Thanks for any feedback Toms doesnt have the GTO or the XXX version with a 610Mhz GPU speed. From the charts the 7900GTX is better than the standard 7950GT, neither compensates for the Different clock speeds. What do you guys think. I reckon the GTO quite a bit cheaper and about the same, plus the overclocking ability after a while. Want to play Oblivion, dawn of war and BF2 (online).

This means less OC capability. Anyway, i think the GTO is a great card whose performance is superior to the 7950GT. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

From what I have been reading the GTO can be overclocked to a 7900GTX and beyond (slightly). I will get the GTO its quite a bit cheaper! freak1982 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
