Differences on EVGA 7800gs models?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am looking to purchase one of the EVGA 7800gs agp cards.



The question I have is:



What is the difference between these two cards? Is it just being overclocked? No software or hardware differences?

E-GEOFORCE 7800 GS CO SUPERCLOCK (PART NUMBER 256-A8-N509-AX)

AND

E-GEOFORCE 7800 GS CO (PART NUMBER 256-A8-N506-AX)



Also what is the difference between the reference fan and the egva fan?

Any hardware/software/cooling/fan differences?



Thank you!!!

just overclock which you can easily achieve via .. riva tuner or nvtweak or whate ever... its just overclock man... the 7800gs egs or whatever it is is exactly the same as all the others its cheaper same everything but the higher models are just overclocked get the cheapest one and you can easily overclock to 460/1.35ghz easly if not 480/1.4ghz

I believe the superclocked version comes with a copper heat sink, which dissapates heat more effetively than the regular heatsink.

Yea I think they did put a better HS on the OC one.

Both the cards have a Copper heatsink so go with the one that is cheaper with the same heatsink and OC it, more than likely you'll get the same clock speeds by using a program.

Don't get the SuperClocked one, waste of money since OC'ing is pretty easy, especially with CoolBits

But why would you then spend $30 on a aftermarket copper HS/F when you could have one built in for $20 more?

Believe it or not the Copper heatsink they put on it is actually quite good..allows you to to not have to buy an extra cooler. Also, what decent AM cooler can you get for $20 shipped. The only ones you should look at are the Arctic Cooling's and the Zalmans and those are $35-$40

Plus the ones with Copper coolers are typically clocked higher than vanilla ones, now if the clocks were the same I'd say just get the vanila one and put a new cooler on but eVGA has a damn nice coper cooler

Plus at Newegg the Copper version is only $10 more and clocked 75MHz higher.
