    The 7900 GT sucks anyway, at least the 3 I owned in succession certainly did.

    The 7900GT was the greatest card for the money at the time of it's release. I never had one single issue with my eVGA 7900GT KO, now I did wait for the memory issue to be fixed before purchasing one. That G71 flew at 750mhz on a 1.55V Volt Mod. Awesome card.

    It's at the time of its release that it had problems. Once they got fixed I had gone through 3 crappy cards and the great X1900's were out by then so I said pluck it and bought one. Never looked back.

    I went from a 7800 GT to an 8800 GT, and the difference was as amazing as sliced bread!

    Really, I always thought the equation went like this....

    Large Fonts = Large Shoe Size = Large Penis ....:david:

    You're right about the 8800GT though.

    Next week hopefully I will be going from a 7600GT to a 8800GT the difference should be HUGE

    Offtopic - psdatta2005 will you stop making so many damn threads on how you will be replacing your 7900GT for an 8800GT. In all the other threads you posted you got the same response. YES! Now you will you stop making useless threads.

    Its not worth it at all if you change from a 7900GT.... sure the 8800GT gets more FPS. But a human eye cant see more than 30-50 FPS....

    What im trying to say is that with a 7900GT you CAN actually play literally EVERY game as smooth as a 8800GT! Sure the 8800GT gets more FPS... but who cares? Lets say you get 500 FPS on a game with 7900GT.... you take a 8800GT and get 1000 FPS.... Is that really a big achievement?

    Yes, its a achievement if you want to Benchmark......... but if you want to play games, there is no differense at all unless you tend to have a resolution of 19232323 x 20003244 and AA @ 99 and AF @ 99.

    I have a 20" TFT which cant handle more than 1280x1024.... and that resolution and quality is more beautiful than a normal Monitors resolution and quality. So no thanks to 8800GT unless a good DX10 game will come up....

    Getting a 8800GT would be a great idea concidering your running a Quad core already. Will def bring a nice increase in framerates :)

    Um ok, please tell me you are just joking.

    Dude, you seriously need to step into my office because your fired!

    I have an 8800GTS OC 640Mb card and an OCed E6600 CPU and I can just barly run Crysis at playable frame rates on Medium settings at 1680 Resolution. That's with NO AA

    Try turning up your settings on a lot of the latest PC games and you will find that the 7900GT is far from powerful enough to handle the task.

    You say 500FPS! What? A 7900GT may be able to bust out 500 FPS playing Donky Kong but that's about it!

    If your gonna give advice at least try to be realistic about things.

    Also, You need to find a new eye Doctor because if you can't see and feel the difference between 30 FPS and 65 FPS in game then you seriously need Glasses.

    That old Bull Crap about, "the human eye not being able to see faster than 30FPS" is a bunch of BS. SOME people can not tell the difference, but many gamers can feel and see a difference and that has been proven already.

    All I can say is DUDE FOS!

    Look around sunshine and see that people are playing Crysis on the "New" 8800GT at 1280 x 1024 with an average frame rate of mid 30's. You think that your 7900GT is going to keep pace with that and that's not with everything at Very High Settings or with aa?

    Get a reality check.

    Just a pity I have to wait till mid next week for my 8800GT to arrive as even without wanting to play Crysis, my little 7600GT is struggling on what I play at 1680 x 1050.

    If you like your slide show, then great, but don't be deluded in thinking that others will ejoy it as well.

    The 7900GT is a good card that will run every game on the market, that is a true statement. I ran BioShock, TF2, and UT3 all maxed out at 1280x1024, now my 7900GT was running at 750/1700 :D Crysis is a whole different animal and can't really be used to determine what kinda hardware you get considering there are really no cards that don't have trouble with Crysis right now.

    The 8800GT will be a huge jump, its the jump I went with for the price per performance. It's basically like getting a GTX for $250 which is a steal. Anandtech has some nice benches if you want to check them out in their review.

    Sorry but thats probably the dumbest comment I've yet heard. It may apply to DX8 games but there are still a few DX9 games that will bring the 7900gt to its knees (I know, I owned one too). Try Oblivion with AAx4, Supersampling and HDR and see the 7900gt wimp out bad. Maybe you cant tell the difference between 30 and 50 FPS but you sure as hell can between 10 and 30 FPS and thats why people buy more powerful cards. Of course, then theres the DX10 games where things get even sillier.

    I guess things would depend on the game and the level of eye candy, 1280x1024 is a nice comfortable res for the 7900gt. Didnt know the 7900gt fared as well in Bioshock (still got mine as a spare).

    I say its definetely do it. Its a great price and you will have GTX performance at the resolution you play. Only problem is finding one and getting one at a reasonable price. Im still thinking if jumping from my 2x 7800GTXs SLI is worth it yet for one 8800GT.

    I loved my 7900GT, but the 8800GT completely demolishes it no matter how you want to attempt to rationalize it. I get a FAR smoother experience in all of the modern games that I play. Hell, my 8800GTS 320 improved gameplay dramatically over the 7900GT, and the 8800GT is even better.

    I think we're intercepting damage^'s posts from an alternate universe.

    I just upgraded to an 8800GT from a 7600GT and HELL YEAH there's a difference. I went from 15-17 fps in Crysis at 1024 x 768 & low settings to 45-60 fps on medium settings.
