hey guys, i currently have the 7950gx2, it runs great with all the games, fear, cod2, etc. but running at the lower res that card may be overkill. would it be worthwhile to return it fo another, faster card that performs well at my lower, 1280x720 res.<br />
<br />
ive read the 7900gtx may be good.<br />
also i have a crossfire capable board, maybe some ati card?<br />
or just keep the 7950gx2 and leave the smile on my face.<br />
<br />
<br />
thanks<br />

my question is... why do you need to upgrade? It's already performing as best as it can.<br />
<br />
If you want a card, get the 7600GT best card can play almost all games maxed out at that res.

To 1024x768, SLI'ed 7600gs or 7600GT will handle all games well.<br />
Or a 7900GT.<br />
A 7950GX2 is overkill even in 1600x1050, you must be playing all games with 600+ fps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get a 7950GT, they beat the 7900GTX/GTOs in low/mid resolution.. like 1280x720 <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Keep your current card and buy a better monitor. <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />

the reason for changing is just cost. i thought there were cheaper cards that would run better at lower res than top shelf cards, since their ment for higher res. <br />
<br />
my best 3dmark06 was 8777 as well. <br />

Well, i think that reslut may be a little low.<br />
But IMO , you don't need to downgrade the GPu just get a better screen.<br />
If you can't afford it , the 7950GT may be your thing, or a X1950XT for 100$ more(i guess)

For a 1024x768 resolution Xfire is a wast of money.<br />
A single card can handle it pretty well.

You shuld honestly just buy a new monitor that supports high resolutions. Hell, even a CRT would help you out with the resolutions.

so a x1950pro is overkill for 1024 x 768?<br />
(sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread)
