    Alright well I'm a bit confused with all of these new video cards being released and I need someone to clarify a few things for me lol...

    I'd like to know what is for example the difference between a 7800gt and a 7900 gt, is there a big difference between them? Is the 7900 gt a replacement for the 7800 or is it just an upgrade?
    It seems the 7800 is not being sold anymore, was there something wrong with it?
    Are they going to do the same with the 8 series, release an 8900 card? or was it an exception?
    Also I was wondering what's the point of the low end cards like the 7300, 7600 etc... Are they better than say a 6800 ultra?

    7800gt = 20 pipes 400/1000 0.11nm
    7900gt = 24 pipes 450/1320 0.9nm

    The 7900gt is the faster card here. Has more pipes and higher clocks. It's marginally faster than the 7800gtx. Anyway, check out this review to see for yourself in more detail.

    It's simpel. Higher number = better performance.
    But whatch out for LE or GS cards, because they all suck. :)

    That's true. Forgot about that one. This card did perform very well for a good price.

    not all..but that is true on low end models

    a more accurate way of saying it would be " LE and GS denote a lower version of their Vanilla or the GT, GTS, GTX and Ultra Counterparts"

    It is simple ....79GT much better card than 78GT....
    79GT have more pips...much Core speed...more Memory Bandwidth...and more Fill Rate than 78GT....

    7950 GT will give you the best 7 series bang for buck, between 7900 GT and GTX
