Wait, so you don't play the games? Or you don't use those resolutions? Are you at higher resolutions then?

My creed...

I am Joe Gamer. I have XX hardware. I want to know what kind of performance I can expect with this hardware. I honestly don't care who can push pixels the fastest in some sort of racemark.

I'm also looking to see "what I need to get" in order to hit that res with a decent amount of IQ. I don't play 3dmark. I play games.

Even I play a few games, Among other things, Web surfing, Email, Video, editing, etc.

Good review and tests!!

I was hoping for more from the 7900GTX, but at least I now know my best option by far is to get another identical 7800GTX 256, and run SLi, as it's by far the cheapest way, and will still outperform either single card offering from ATi or nVidia.

I'll have a look into doing something like that. We did an article like that a little while ago, but it didn't cover transparency/adaptive AA and high quality AF. The first article we did was here: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2005/07/04/aliasing_filtering/1.html

I think it would be worth doing a second one in that series to help to explain the differences between Adaptive AA and Transparency AA. ;)

That would be great. It would be cool to have a whole article dedicated to comparing the filtering and IQ settings from each company.

I'll see what we can do next week ;)

Any chance of a 7900GT round up?

I'm thinking of Evga 7900GT OC SC....

Not many people can afford the 7900GTX, and since the 7900GT is much more affordable, I think it would have gathered more attention if you did a 7900GT round up.

bye bye

We said we'd be covering 7900 GT / 7600 GT in other articles ;)

The ASUS card was the best overclocker of the bunch, as we were able to get it running stabilly at 706/1770MHz without any tearing or deficiencies, while MSI's NX7800GTX-T2D512E overclocked to 679/1706MHz without any issue. On the other hand, the two BFG Tech GeForce 7900 GTX OC cards overclocked to 695/1702MHz and 691/1680MHz respectively. This was a little lower than what we expected from these cards. However, it proves the point that overclocking can be a lottery at the best of times.

I'm a little confused--will the ASUS card actually put up some higher fps than the BFG after overclocking it? I'm a little lost in the 'Overclocking' section... Thanks.

Edit: I liked the article--it gave me the info I need for comparison.

Hi there & welcome to the forums.

The ASUS card will return higher performance than the BFG Tech card when overclocked to the frequencies found. However, we can't garauntee that if you buy the ASUS, you'll automatically get higher frequencies than are possible with the BFG Techs. ;)
