7900GTO is basically a GTX with a lower RAM speed. The GTO for sure.

Nothing but trouble with the 7950's. <br />
GTO is cheaper, safer, and can be OC'ed to a GTX. <br />
I haven't had any problems with mine (only had it a week, upgraded froma 6600gt) Its purely awesome, i can run all games i have on full. <br />
<br />
I say the GTO because of the price/performance ratio <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

GTO... if you can find one in stock anywhere. If you do them PM me right away cuz I'll buy it on the spot. <br />
<br />
GTO = 650MHz core clock, 24 pipes<br />
7950GT = 550MHz core clock, 24 pipes

I own a EVGA 7900GTO and love it. It overclocks higher than a 7900GTX's stock speeds (I've gotten to 725 core, 1700 mem) and is cheaper than the 7950GTs. The cooling is ample and whisper quiet, even in a water-cooled case. The performance is baffling for the price.<br />
<br />
I can't really compare the two in real-world testing, but the GTO would probably outperform the 7950.<br />
<br />
Only problem is finding one . . . got mine early before everyone discovered they were just underclocked GTXs and they sold out.

The only difference that I see, it's that the GTX is running with more memory bandwidth and the GTX cost a lot more than the GTO: <a href="http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=459&card2=383" target="_blank">http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=459&card2=383</a><br />
<br />
<br />
So, definitely the GTO is a much better choice. Except that, aren't they out of stock everywhere? I mean, only eVGA manufactured that card, what's up with that? <br />
<br />
All I know is that I'm waiting for a DX10 car in the form of a GeForce 8xxx series.

No MSI also made the card <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">. The bandwidth decrease can be acredited to the downclock.

I also have this question, but was more because I just got a new monitor, the Viewsonic VX2025WM, running at 1680x1050. Someone told me the 7950GT has an HD advantage over the 7900GTO, any truth in this? If the 7950 gave me a slightly better image on this monitor i'd prefer that over the slight increase in performance heh.<br />
<br />
Anyone know?<br />
<br />
Cheers

Wow, I'm really going against the grain here, I love my 7950GX2! I would really have to say it comes down cost and/or one PCI-E slot or 2. The 7950 uses one slot and runs in SLI mode. It plays HD in all modes on my VX924 and HD games look great. I have mine OC'd to 570/1500. <br />
<br />
The real question for me would be why not wait for DX10 at this point, but that's just me. I just thought I'd put in a good word for my video card, I wouldn't trade it. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Have no where near the cash for a 7950GX2 right now, i have a 6600 which cost me £90, and has and still does me fine. Just now with the new monitor theres been a slight decrease all round performance wise due to the much higher resolution.<br />
<br />
Was looking at around £150-£200, maybe a tad over, getting the best bang for buck NVIDIA card =D

Yea i had a 6600gt about 5 months ago. Cost me £80. And i only bought my gto last week<br><br>
Why wait for DX10? You could always buy one now and you will be able to play most games maxed out for a yr (not sure about future games) but the card is future proof for a year or so. Then you can think about upgrading because DX10 cards will have gone down in price. Its better than waiting and paying scary amounts of money when they will just plummit within 6mnths or less.<br><br>
Anywho thats my justification for buying mine and its only an opinion, but one i firmly stand by <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"><br><br>
Ive read about alot of driver issues with the GX2, and some temp problems. But if you can stand by the GX2 then it doesnt really matter about the issues<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"><br><br>
EDIT: Dabs and Ebuyer have them in stock but hurry because last week ebuyer had 190 in stock, i looked today and thye had 140. Dunno how many dabs had but i got mine from there and it works perfectly, 2 day delivery time n all.

7900 GTO for sure. Wish I had done more research before I bought my 7950 GT. <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
Now that GTO's have gone up in price and are harder to get, the 7950GT is now a good deal. I am able to reach 710 Mhz Core/830 MHz memory with stock cooling. I run the card regularly at 650 core / 800 memory and am happy with my $270 GTX.
