Should i buy x1900xt(x) or Nvidia's new card( And when it will be realeased) - Page 2

Will the 7800GT prive drop when the 7900 comes out? How much do you think it will? Will the 7800GT be able to play dx10 games right now.

hmm I'm pretty sure the new nvidia drivers will have support for dx10 when it comes out, wether or not the card supports it natively i'm not sure, remember dx10 wont be out until vista is officially released.

As far as the price going down, most definately the 78** series cards will drop in price when the next gen is released, as is customary of the video card price cycle.

If you have some spare time this is really cool: http://3dgpu.com/archives/2006/01/23...rectx-10-demo/

Now, analysis of the latest FPS technology is not necessarily one of my strongest points, but I can tell you that there’s some really scary voodoo in here, including leaves that cast real-time shadows and move independently in response to contact. You can also really see the physics taking shape in the footage of destructible environments – when that truck hits the shack, it falls apart in a way that is darn near believable. How long ago was it that were we playing Wolfenstein 3D again?
EDIT: WATCH THE DAMN VIDEO JESUS THATS NICE.

The card won't support DX10, but you will be able to play DX10 games on it as nvidia will release drivers to allow this, but only running in DX9.

The x1900xt is only DX9. The cards due later this year will be DX10.

7900 Will unfortunately own the 1900XTX. The 1900XTX only beats last gen nvdia by a few fps.

ok, one thing YOU DON"T NEED 1gig of memory on the graphics cards yet. Currently 256 is barely being used and 512 is already quite overkill where its only impacts a couple of games, even then not being totally noticeable. Core speed and memspeed, along with pipes, shaders, and dx support is where it is at.

there was one game that uses more than 512m of video ram when running in full textures/1900res can't remember which it was but it would maek a difference on that.
