The 8800GTS is about half again as good as the 7900GTX. If you're satisfied with the 7900 already, there is no need to upgrade...

The 8800GTS is better. And I don't think you can hook up your PS2 to your 7900.

The architecture of the two cards are different so you cannot look at specs to really compare. You need to look at benchmarks and testing. The 8800GTS performs about 60-90% better than the 7900GTX.
Once again...

Although they are both great cards, the 8800GTS 640 pwns the 7900GTX. Here's a comparison. (Look for the blue bars ) You can also select from the drop-down menu what other benchmarks you'd like to see them compared in. Hope this helps

It decreases your frames per second but gives you better image quality.
