7800GS worth the money? - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Dont buy the superclock. Just buy the lowest clocked/cheapest 7800GS you can find and OC it yourself.

If you MUST buy an AGP card, go for the GS, but I would actually reccomend that you upgrade to PCI-E (tis' what I'm doing in a few weeks).
Are you going to be seeling your 6800GS, i may be interested

But the 7800GS beats the x850xtpe or w/e by just a few FPS in games, but the 7800GS is about 100 dollars cheaper

There is an Albatron, Foxconn, ASUS and ASrock PCI-E 478 board, the best one is the ASUS.

Edit: the superclock is obviously not worth it, you can run it at, or past those speeds with any 7800GS AGP, and save $20! Getting the superclock would be a waste of money.
