7800gtx

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I asked my dad for the best video card for christmas so he goes out and finds this...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150105 is it any good? Looks to be pretty beastly, but can it be overclocked even more even though it comes overclocked factory? Anyone ever used it?

You should find cheaper ones than that on newegg.

Man I wish my dad bought me such expensive toys when I was a kid. I have two and its performance is excellent. What is the rest of your system like? You'll most likely be system limited in 3D games now, the GeForce 7800GTX is very fsat. As for overclocking, on air my two cards can do about 520/1450 but obviously your mileage may vary.

I'm gonna be that kind of dad when I'm older...lol

I would honestly go for an eVGA because of hte step-up program and when the prices of the GTX falls, you can grab one of their KO versions with the better cooling on it if you need to and just pay the difference.

Pretty much any GTX you go with will be fine but go with ones with better stock cooling if you dont want to mess with the stock ones.

Also, eVGA doesnt void the warranty if you put on a different cooler and mess it up...another plus imo

Holy crap get it. I wish my parents would let me get a $500 video card. My dad just pushed me off with his old FX5200 until I get my own.

Wow. My dad doesn't even know where the on button is for the computer let alone buy stuff for me. On the other hand I am a bit older than some people on here I'd imagine (22) yea I'm not ancient but I'm not a teenager anymore.

Almost forgot to mention, get a 7800gtx!! they're awesome. Just wish I could afford one

i have that exact XFX and it is great. the highest overclock i've got on mine (stock heatsink with plastic removed and an 80mm fan mounted on top) is 517Mhz core and 1370Mhz memory. that OC was stable for plenty of runs through various benchmarks, but i leave it at 511/1350 for normal use.

great card, the only thing better is the GTX 512Mb, which is a freaking FAST card, but it's pretty spendy right now. not to mention out of stock at newegg.

yeah, my parents don't really buy me much for my computer. however, I did get a 6600GT for my last b-day so I could use it in SLI. My parents also bought my 2 seagates for my RAID array.. but then again I was trading them a whole computer for my 2 hd so I think they got the better end of the deal!
