RMA'ing my 7900GT (Looks like it's time...)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I've heard that XFX replaces defect 7900 GT's such as mine with 8600 GTS or 8600 GT XXX, if so, which one would be more stable on a 16 A +12v rail? (my PSU sucks)

I thought the GTS and 7900GT we're very similar in performance??
post #6 of 24
Yeah if they sent or ask you if you want a 8600 tell them its a downgrade. In many GPU boxes it shows 7900 X20 faster then intergrated and 8600 X17.

I was just about to post, and say.. Surely the equivalent to a 7900GT by todays standards, would be an 8800GT.

I am wondering because if i get an 8800 or something, the guy named william on the XFX site if they have a 7900 GT in stock they'd do that, otherwise something in the 8 series would have to do. I need to know because my PSU sucks. 8600 GT would be the best for my setup because i have no money.

I mailed it out today. It cost me $8.35 to ship. They better send me something that works.

Guaranteed 8800. There was a post on an XFX forum, and an 8800 class card is the replacement for 7900GT 's.

I was sent an 8600GTS from a 7900GT RMA, and should have demanded a return, but I just stepped it up.

I will have to see what I get as well, I am RMA'ing a 7900GT to BFG in a few days.
