lewis55i see you have one im getting the xfx 7900gt extreme is it faster than 7800gtx?
It depends on which gtx you are comparing it to. But for the most part, yes, at stock speeds the xfx 7900gt is faster than all but the totally tweaked out 7800gtx's. Either way, I can't imagine you'll be disappointed with it.
No 7800 GTX and a 7900 GT are the same speed mabey the 7900 gt beats the 7800GTX by 5 or 10 frames by the most. It could probally play Oblvion at max setings :D

7800gt. i read on this forum not too long ago someone got it to 7800gtx speeds.
so thats really ez becuase a GT is at 400/1200 and the GTX is 450/1350 I think
Why does the thread say 7600?
because i was getting that but just got a cheap 7900 gt
Ooo, nvm then.
Videoslaveso thats really ez becuase a GT is at 400/1200 and the GTX is 450/1350 I think
Just to clarify on the 7900gt being faster than most 7800gtx's...
I think most 7800gts are at around 400/1000 to 420/1050. The 256mb 7800gtx is often 450/1200 to 490/1300. The 512mb 7800gtx was usually around 550/1700, if you could find one (unlikely) and had $700 to blow on it (also not likely).
The XFX 7900gt he is buying is clocked at 520/1500 right out of the box. I think the slowest 7900gt I've seen is clocked at 450/1320. The 7900gtx is typically at 650/1700 and higher.
And then there's the crazy people out there (like me) who volt mod their cards and get massive overclocks. :naughty: On my eVGA 7900gt CO, I went from 500/1500 up to a completely stable 670/1850, and currently run it at 650/1800. Even stock, these cards OC extremely well.
Videoslave7600 GT FTW!!! PS 3.0 VS. the X850 got PS 2.1 the X850 might be a bit faster but 7600 GTs got more 3D bells and whistles
how is that possible? my x800gto has pixel shader 3.0...you have something mixed up.
Ultimate-Omenhow is that possible? my x800gto has pixel shader 3.0...you have something mixed up.
WTF!!! lets be clear all the X line of atis cards dont have PS 3.0 but the X1K dose.......... SO EAT LEAD SUCKER!! lol
