Nvidia 7800gs Or Ati X850xt Platinum Edition? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Well Im still not sure if the 7800gs is even being made yet even with that article above. As Nvidia has said no and anandtech brought that way back. If you look at that article it says that its available on compusa and I searched and couldn't find it. I know that it was being worked on but I think they ditched it. Wait until thursday though because its the rumor that it is coming out and that was an error on the site.

Then I can go with an even higher end card. Money really is not too big of an issue if price is not that much different.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!!
the top intel board is the asus 975x

stock vs stock, the x1800xt is faster than the gtx256. Overclocked vs Overclocked? Im also willing to say the x1800xt will still come out the victor. And why you talking about gtx and 1800 lol?

In a couple shader intense games like FEAR and Splinter Cell the X1800XT beats the GTX512 but its behind in most games...although not by that much.
Very nice!

If you play AGE3, HL2, FEAR, CoD2, Farcry or anything that uses shader 3.0 go for nVidia, as the X8xx series from ati doesn't support it and at least in AGE3 there are major image quality drawbacks. For AGP 7800gs/6800gs.

straying abit lol maybe a poll would have been better on this thread but from whats down I think its about preference rather than card some people will stand by nvidia at the cost of a few mhz here and there and the same for those who stand by ATI, at the end of the day it aint just about product but support for the product, new drivers, software etc I personally would say nvidia mate, my last 3 have been nvidia and I have been impressed everytime, all have been OC'd and I have never had a problem but I am sure the next guy will say the same for ATI so check back in about 6 pages time to find the conclusion
