XFX GeForce 7800 GS AGP OR BFG GeForce™ 7800 GS OC??????

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am looking at upgrading my AGP system to the new 7800GS card. From what I understand these cards beat ATI's X850XT PE? Is that true?

I have read many reviews and it looks as if XFX and BFG are the two companies to get them from. Which is the better one and why?

I had read that the BFG comes OC at 400/1250 and the XFX comes OC at 440/1300. Is this true. One review said the XFX fan was loud.

Advice would be greatly appreciated.

Price is not a factor. Just want the best one. Thanks!!!

Those r two great grapic card companies, XFX cards OC quite well as do the BFG, BFG cards are usually more expensive b/c they come with lifetime warranties

Actually it is almost the same to the x850xt PE but it maybe be better in benchmarks.....just look up the benchmarks from sites

and as for company, XFX is good...because they have a long warrenty, BFG is declining in their reputation because their warrenty isnt as lopng as XFX or eVGA

i would say go for Evga because they have a double lifetime warrenty, like say you sell it to someone then theyll still have the warrenty and they have a step-up program

BFGs are more expensive because they come factory OCed.

And as far as which card, I'd say save your cash and switch to PCIe... but if you really need to stay AGP, I'd say go with the XFX. The BFG's not worth the extra cash.

I would not recommend BFG these days, they have had some very bad Q/C the last few weeks. We have had several un opened box's where the hsf and hs have fallen off. Id suggest eVga, they are about the best nVidia based cards out atm.

actually better over all, the x8x0 serires dont have hardware support for ps.3.0 or vs3.0, so either way the 7800gs is better

Im a layman when it comes to some of this stuff, but how would it be cheaper to switch to Pcie? I would need a new MOB, Video card and processor right?

Agreed. The eVga cards looks the best out of the rest.
Not bad at all...

evga or xfx... and dont waste your money on getting an OCed version, because it just costs more money and you can do it yourself...for free..
