    Give good advice often?

    7952 x2 - More like the 7950GX2.
    X1900XTX - You got that one right, until the X1950XTX is shipped out.
    7900GT - There's a 7900GTX which is a bit better.

    Ok, you're done.

    The 7900GT and the 7900GTX are two different cards. Sure, the 7900GT is basically a 7900GTX clocked a bit lower, but that doesn't change the fact that you were wrong in saying that the 7900GT is the fastest card in the market pertaining to single GPU solution, when the 7900GTX really is the fastest single GPU card from NVIDIA.

    The best PCI video card on the market is the NVIDIA GeForce 6200.

    As of today there are no dual-core video cards out on the market.

    The original post asked about the best pci video card, not the best pci express card. The best pci-e cards are fairly common knowledge around here, whereas the best pci card (being unusual) is not, so I suspect that the poster indeed means plain old vanilla pci.

    There's a pci Radeon 9250 256mb and a pci GeForce FX5500 though I would suspect the 6200 would be slightly better.

    Oh, really?

    Find me a PCI-X video card on Newegg and I will personally send you $50 using PayPal.

    Lol, im glad you caught that one Oblivious, though the title seems to be shared.

    And what the man says is entirely true! However, 6200 PCI's are rather difficult to find. As are the 5500's. I myself have a 9250, and it manages to play CSS and CoD2 decently at the lowest settings.

    LOL Forgive my momentary typo! If you look at my post again, you'll see I corrected it before you posted. :p

    For those who don't know, he's referring to PCI-X (often confused with the entirely different PCI-E or PCIe) It was a revision to the PCI standard that doubles the clock speed from 66 MHz to 133 MHz. And you are correct, I'm fairly certain there were never any PCI-X video cards.

    And I wasn't attacking anyone, I was just trying to clarify the poster's question as it was stated.

    Sorry for the thread-jacking, but I thought I'd clear that up. This pci stuff can get confusing. ;)

    There are a handful of PCI-X video cards, some are even PCI 2.2 compliant.
    Matrox Parhelia PCIX flavor is one of the best ones. Not really intended for home computers or gamers.

    We really need a "Before you ask a question" sticky somewhere before people confuse the living daylights out of these know-it-all n00bs.
