I can play pretty much everything on High and Full AA (except Quake 4 with AA cause that thing is a hog at 1280x960)

And

Both say the Framerates are better on the GT where it matters most not the benchmarking, so there's my proof, but as I said some games render better with either company it's just a mtter of which ones you play. The XL is an alright card but the GT has more versatility

I wont argue that at stock speeds the 7800gt is better, but an overclocked x1800xl will beat an overclocked 7800gt any day in most games/benches

I guess I forgot to mention that mine is overclocked


And the link you gave me proved that I was right, look at the attached screen LOL...

PS They didnt even overclock the memory, so I wouldnt even go by those screens

I guess you fogot to look at the other games and the other chart above that one that showed the XL lacked, but I guess that's what people do is go by only 1 chart that their card is better. The XL (and XT) was outperformed by a whole lot against the GT...granted those are older games but nonetheless the GT still outperformed it by a substantial margin.

So the XL did ok in Far Cry but lets see the others

The GT is on top...so I did prove my case but you didn't with your 1 screen as to 5-6 for the GT. So say what you will, 1 game and 1 Bench for for a card doesn't make it superior in gameplay over another in the same tier

Why do you keep hyping up that card of yours? You're taking a benchmark score and trying to run with it like it's some sort of Cray Supercomputer (through a dead technology I might add; upgrade to PCIe please). Also, you're ATI card doesn't beat a eVGA 7800GT.

They barely overclocked the x1800xl

They have it running @ 574/1060 and mine is running @ 600/1400 just a little bit of a difference there LOL


Honestly not that much different...that XFX GT is clocked lower than mine. I have a really high Clock for a GT...Clock Speeds dont matter all that much if the rest of your computer is lacking

Both are fine cards... but the eVGA 7800GT 516 or 517 is on my to purchase list!
Can anyone confirm the 516 has the copper HS?

I have the 516 so yes it does have the CO heatsink and clocked at 445 - edited

I think the 517 is the CO, the one that BigVal is getting and it's clocked at 460 instead of 470 and is cheaper, but that was in Canada so it might be different here in the states

EDIT: I'm wrong I actually got a CO that was accidentily label a CO SE

if you look at all the other charts youl see that Nvidia wins(except for Black & white the game)

Having looked at all those, the x1800xt beats the 7800gt in all games except for FEAR, so when you have an x1800 xl running nearly xt speeds which card do you think is gonna win the battle...

I've noticed that x1800xt beats the 7800 GT in benchmarks, but in actual game play it seems to fall behind.

Optimized for benchmarks to appear better than it is?

Sme goes for GT's running at GTX speeds (which mine is), that throws out your argument right there

I know right, I mentioned this in the x1900XT thread saying that Ati probably optimized the card, and someone told me that was a stupid way of thinking, but it's obviously true especially with the x1800s. how can a card that scores higher in a 3d05 Benchmark (9000+) lose in gameplay, I'll take gameplay FPS than a benchmark score, the x1800's were junk if you ask me, the x1900XT is on par to a GTX but still 1 generation behind
