Well, someone linked the GPUreview website, and it does a pretty good comparison, but what I would like to know is how accurate it REALLY is, here I have a shot of my dual 6600s (overclocked) compared to one 7900GT on its stock clock, it looks pretty close, what do you guys think?

You're comparing apples to oranges. Don't you think overclocked 7900's would do better than overclocked 6600's?

I think not, since they are both GFX card, while they each have completely different cores, and different architecture, I am saying the performance of one stock 7900 vs the performance of my dual 6600GTs overclocked... maybe only benchmarks will tell?

7900GT has shader model 3.0 which is much better for newer games such as oblivion

By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe.

So do 6600GTs.

ANYWAYS.

I've had both.

I can tell you right now. the 7900GT ABSOLUTELY blows the dual 6600GTs out of the water. There is really no comparison.

The 6600 also has SM3.

My 6600 was @ 540Mhz but I bet you $5 a 6600 540Mhz is nothing comapred to a 7900 540Mhz.

I'll bet a million $ and my computer that even 2 6600GT at 540MHz is nothing compared to one 7900GT at 540MHz.
