7800 or x1800 - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Go for the eVGA, the XFX GT uses a 4-pin molex which seems a little odd, most 7series card use a 6-pin, makes it easier if your PSU is SLI compatible plus it doesnt take up a precious 4-pin molex connector.

It's up to you but I got my eVGA GT CO for $305 from there is OTB is clocked at 470 which is the highest and it's got a Copper Heatsink for more clocking...Though its a slight bit more I think it's worth it for the better cooling and eVGA's step-up if you decide you want a GTX within 90 days

I just posted a new thread about a 7800 or 6800 for the money. I decided that I want nVidia but my money is lower than I'd like...
post #13 of 19
just to clarify... for most games

7800GTX 512 > 7800GTX > x1800XT > 7800GT > x1800XL

of course there are exceptions but most gfx comparisons come to this conclusion.

if you can swing it I would say get the 7800GT it will have much better performance than a 6800 series card. however, if you want 6800 series your best bet is the 6800GS. it performs on par with a 6800GT and only costs about 210.

the 7800 series are still cheaper than the x1800 series though... which makes them the best bet. and if you have a disposable cashflow nvidia has the fastest card on the market

We need to make a sticky on EVGA's step up program. Its utter crap.

You buy a card from the egg for 200, its worth 250 on evga's website.

When you do the step up pgram they either give yoiu the 200$ you paid or the 250$ its worth towards a new card THAT MUST BE PURCAHSED FROM EVGA. It has to be from their website.

The cheapest 7800gt on their site costs 400$..So assumming they only give you your 200$ , you are basically buying another vidcard. In which case you could be running SLI 6800gs which will smash a gt. Even if they give you 250$, you still owe shipping. So it will costs an extra 150$ for a gt when it reality it only costs 80$ more retail.

Evga's step up prgram is iffy. Would most likely be more effective to sell your card on ebay or in forums and use that towards a new card.

That sucks. Not going to be using that!

But would any 6800 have performance on par with a 7800?
post #18 of 19
No. 16 pipes vs. 20 pipes = no comparison (I'm talking about Nvidia pipes, not ATI's crazy-efficient pipes)
post #19 of 19
It's not just the pipelines either. I saw a test where they downclocked a 7800GTX to 6800Ultra clocks and disabled 8 pixel pipelines and 2 vertex pipelines so it was 16/6 like the 6800Ultra and the 7800GTX was still about 10-15% faster. It's an improved architecture.
