Hey guys, just wondering which 7900gt to buy as i'm looking to buy one tommorrow along with my gamexstream 600w but there are too many and im not sure which brands are unreliable nowadays.<br><br>
I was looking to get a gigabyte one as i can get it for £155 but there is a bfg for £180. Which one would i be best off getting? or doesn't it really matter?<br>
I would get EVGA but they don't deliver to UK off newegg <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"><br><br>
Thanks for any info, Iced.

I am in the doesn't matter category - both are made by Nvidia. IF you want to overclock them, both are going to need after markets coolers. Take the cheapest one, BFG, good company.

Sorry for the double-post, but didn't I see somewhere that gigabyte had a 7900gs with a rebranded zalman-vf700 cooler included? Seemed like a good deal

Unfortunately the BFG is the dearer one, but im not too fussed about price really. Have you ever had any trouble with your BFG? Does it run ok?<br><br>
Thanks

Oopsie got the prices mixed up....no...the bfg has run great. I did need to RMA the first one I got due to a capacitor bouncing around the box upon receipt, but to the testamate of the company, they gave me no grief on the swap.

Of those two id rather take BFG, although they are more like wannabe XFX/EVGA, although theyre not too bad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

Look for a 7900gto. It should be the same price for a better card<br><a href="http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx?quicklinx=4992&engine=froogle&keyword=MSI+GeForce+7900GTO+512MB+DDR3+PCIE+Dual+DVI+SLI+HDR" target="_blank">http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx...al+DVI+SLI+HDR</a>

I would take the Gigabyte one, its the same thing. That extra £25 isn't worth it IMO.<br><br>
A 7950GT or 7900GTO would be better, cheaper too depending on vender.

Go for the GTO. MSI has been around for awhile in the MB game and make some good stuff.

MSI makes decent motherboards and their video cards are pretty nice too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Much better then the 7900GT, OC the GTO a bit and you'll have a GTX for cheap <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

Never bought one of their graphics cards but they push a lot of mobos out the door. Again all made by Nvidia, so I don't think the company means as much - just go with the best bang for the buck
