    Hi guys,

    Hope u can help me out here.
    My mobo is broken and with the price drops with P4 processors..thinking to buy a new mobo and proc based and use a PCI-E on it.

    Now I have the chance to buy a new gfxcard. My budget is actually 200€, with a max of about 270€.

    My search has netted the above mentioned cards.

    Which is the better choice? the 7900GS? Reputedly as fast as the 7900GT but cheaper.

    Or go really high end with the 7800GTX or the x1900XT 512mb.Both at 270€.

    is it worth the difference?

    yeah, x1900 ftw.

    or if you want to save some money go for a secondhand 7800gtx, I've just bought a second one for sli on ebay for £110 (163 euros), and that was buy it now. They're going seriously cheap at the moment.

    he doesnt need to mess about upgrading now, if i were you id wait until the new generation cards are out so you can save some more money up and get faster hardware for less money.
