So, definitely the GTO is a much better choice. Except that, aren't they out of stock everywhere? I mean, only eVGA manufactured that card, what's up with that?

All I know is that I'm waiting for a DX10 car in the form of a GeForce 8xxx series.
No MSI also made the card . The bandwidth decrease can be acredited to the downclock.

As said overall the 7900GTO will serve you better due to the speeds. Can also be overclocked nicely.

7900GTO FTW

I also have this question, but was more because I just got a new monitor, the Viewsonic VX2025WM, running at 1680x1050. Someone told me the 7950GT has an HD advantage over the 7900GTO, any truth in this? If the 7950 gave me a slightly better image on this monitor i'd prefer that over the slight increase in performance heh.

Anyone know?

Cheers

No the 7950 uses the same core. It is HDCP compliant but thats just for new movies for copyright protection

Wow, I'm really going against the grain here, I love my 7950GX2! I would really have to say it comes down cost and/or one PCI-E slot or 2. The 7950 uses one slot and runs in SLI mode. It plays HD in all modes on my VX924 and HD games look great. I have mine OC'd to 570/1500.

The real question for me would be why not wait for DX10 at this point, but that's just me. I just thought I'd put in a good word for my video card, I wouldn't trade it.

Have no where near the cash for a 7950GX2 right now, i have a 6600 which cost me £90, and has and still does me fine. Just now with the new monitor theres been a slight decrease all round performance wise due to the much higher resolution.

Was looking at around £150-£200, maybe a tad over, getting the best bang for buck NVIDIA card =D

Yea i had a 6600gt about 5 months ago. Cost me £80. And i only bought my gto last week

Why wait for DX10? You could always buy one now and you will be able to play most games maxed out for a yr (not sure about future games) but the card is future proof for a year or so. Then you can think about upgrading because DX10 cards will have gone down in price. Its better than waiting and paying scary amounts of money when they will just plummit within 6mnths or less.

Anywho thats my justification for buying mine and its only an opinion, but one i firmly stand by

Ive read about alot of driver issues with the GX2, and some temp problems. But if you can stand by the GX2 then it doesnt really matter about the issues

EDIT: Dabs and Ebuyer have them in stock but hurry because last week ebuyer had 190 in stock, i looked today and thye had 140. Dunno how many dabs had but i got mine from there and it works perfectly, 2 day delivery time n all.

7900 GTO for sure. Wish I had done more research before I bought my 7950 GT.

Now that GTO's have gone up in price and are harder to get, the 7950GT is now a good deal. I am able to reach 710 Mhz Core/830 MHz memory with stock cooling. I run the card regularly at 650 core / 800 memory and am happy with my $270 GTX.
