i have to buy namebrand because my aunt's company has to reimburse her. i figured dell was the best name brand for gaming. other than hp which is more expensive.

Ohh okay my bad i thought you could drop the 8300 from the package. (off topic) At Oblivious i remember about a year ago you had a overclocked 256 mb 7900 GT, How come you bought a 7950 now?

Oblivious;3860416I think don't you can get an XPS with integrated, the base model is the 8300, which does indeed also suck, hence the poster's original problem. But it's all free. Let that :smokin: out. ;) I'd hang on to the 8300 though to use as a spare or for troubleshooting. I wish I had a spare PCI-E card. Lost my main rig for a week during video card rma last month.

you could always buy a 64 mb pci card. its good enough for troubleshooting :lol:

It went defective on me about 6 weeks ago. 7900GTs are very problematic, avoid them.

Nice thing is the 7950 I got back from EVGA was 512mb whereas my 7900 was only 256. Core speed is faster too, but to me it's actually slower since I had my 7900 running faster than a 7900gtx. I'm thinking I can live without the voltmod this time though, this card doesn't seem to like to overclock much at all anyways.

btw - Year and a half old card, replaced for the cost to ship it back. EVGA's warranty rocks.

I have a BFG 7950 GT that I got for christmas and it's been running great ever snice. BFG says the video card that i have has got lifetime warranty witch i think is BS becuase BFG could go out of business without warrning. I always thought that the 7950 GT was faster then the 7900 GTX at stock becuase the 7950 GT has a newer core. Anyway is there anything that you're 7950 512 dose better then you're 256 7900? And you say that you're 7900 overclocked was faster then you're 7950 do you know buy how much?

It does have the "newer" core, but it doesn't make it any faster. I'd give up my 7950 for a 7900GTX in a heartbeat.

Depending on the brand, these can be slightly different, but basically it's like this: Stock 7900GTX speed is ~650mhz/1650mhz (core/memory) Stock 7950GT speed is ~550mhz/1400mhz Stock 7900GT speed is ~500mhz/1500mhz My volt modded 7900GT speed was 670mhz/1800mhz

I guess that would make it about 18-20% faster than the 7950 core speed.

The 7950 benchmarks better at stock than did my 7900. Other than that, I've not seen anything it "does better", but it's a great card. I plan to give the 7950 to my daughter as soon as I get a 9 series card, so I don't want to (possibly) shorten it's lifespan with another voltmod.

P.S. - Sorry for the thread jacking... :lookaround:

7900GTX is a great card, my friend uses one, and it's pretty awesome for how long it's been out.
