Hey guys I am desiging a new system I want to start building and I was wondering what is a very good GeForce 7 Series with east least 512MB unless you guys think is not needed. I am not looking into a 512X2 because they are expensive.

</div>Get an XFX 7900GS XT and overclock the hell out of it since it OC's GREAT and that will hold you over til DX10 and beyond it's release.<br />
<br />
Unless you're looking for a more long-term use gpu...

well i have a Gainward 7950GT 256 Mb one, it's good, it's quicker than a 7900GT (slightly), butt get a 512 Mb version of the 7950GT, its not much more and is aparently faster, although this is fast enough for me!

I would wait until Direct X 10 comes out. Because it will be instantly obsolete.

yea but when will this DX 10 cards come out and how useful will it be with out Vista being out yet? I also read somewere that 7900 and up would support DX10 I think Emulated or something like that until DX10 is fully set on all new hardware and that is after vista is out.

I have two 7900GTs volt modded, LOOK at my benches, lol, I am just shy of 10,000 in 3dmark06 (9900), for now I question how much the Xtra RAM actually helps (of course it does to an extent), but u know with the 8800 series coming out so soon, I would just wait.
