    Very nice job! Selling 7800GTX254 for 400$ is a VERY god deal for you (NOT for your friend tough)
    Becouse a 7900GT is better than 7800GTX 256, nad cost less.

    I absolutely recommend a 7900GT and later you can buy another one, in SLI!

    X1900XT is also a very god Videocard.

    I'd recommend not selling it now and hang on to it until DX10 cards are out.

    Go for the eVGA 7900GT CO mate (500/1500 clocks). I've seen most of these binned cards pass the Superclocked models easily.

    Main reason I'm saying this is because you're doing the same thing I did.
    I'm currently waiting for the Egg to get them back in stock.

    not sell. why?
    He have a chance to buy a better and cheaper card!

    You coud buy a 7900GT (500/1500), and keep the $101 i earn, and save it to G80 comes out! (with DX10 support!)

    Wonderful Work! CONGRATS..
    Go for the 7900 GT and keep the money and Enjoy....
    100$ is a nice add to your wallet.. and the
    79GT is Cheap nice and extremely FAST ...what else ... 512 cool but
    until next Gen...me too is on the track to get mine..

    No ATI does not have Digital vibrance and if you accustomed to it you will be
    disappointed with the colors without it ..

    Have a nice day...

    lol, he could probably just get a 7900 GT for himself and keep some money left over. LOL :D Unlss he needs the 7800 GTX for SLI, then it could make sense...

    I'd go for the 1900. I haven't looked back. CCC has saturation control options that mimic DV, just harder to get the hang of.
     

  11. If you can walk into a X1900XT for a total of only $39 out of your pocket, you'd be a fool not to get one. It is easily the highest performing card you are considering, and not by a small margin either. Also don't forget that with ATI's new X3200 chipset mobo's you don't need a master card anymore for Crossfire, or the ungodly dongle cable either for that matter.

    hey vinteg, hows that 5900xt holding up. I had the same card about 3 cards ago and had it flashed to 5950 bios and it was the best bang for buck card ive ever purchased. I think $150 and it flashed to a $300 card....back then anyway...

    You made a wise decision in selecting the 7900gt. By far the most bang for the buck. The x1900 is a good card but is no match for the 7900gtx 512. Also ATI's crossfire is a joke, buggy drivers and the cards have to depend on a cord for the crossfire feature to work. Word of the wise guys, ATI is falling of the market fast, go with NVIDIA.

    Nah, ripoff your friend and bank the $100 after getting a 7900GT. Or put a little more in and get a 7900GTX. Eitherway, you win.

    DX10 requires an entire slew of upgrades. New OS(vista), at least 2 GB memory (4GB should be good for a while), None of which are even expected until 2007. I really have my eyes on an X1900XT myself. I keep hearing about ATI's superior image quality? Here in the US, prices on the 7900GTX's are going up (from MSRP of $500 to as high as $600) while the X1900's are going down. Some OEM XTX's are going for $500, XT's for $430, $440. What's the word on the X1900XL? I hope it fits nicely between the 7900GT and X1900XT.
