Default 7800GS is amazing

I RMA'd my busted 6800GT back to eVGA, and since they're out of those right now, they sent me a 7800GS instead. Well, the one they sent is the base model, stock at 375/1200 MHz. They have a model that comes overclocked and I was slightly upset that I didn't get that one. I started to overclock this one, and it's incredible. Right now I'm running at 475/1440 with no artifacting at all. If you're looking for a great AGP upgrade, this is it.

You have a PCI-E card, the 7800GS is AGP. Pretty big difference.

AMD Athlon 64 3700+
DFI LanParty UT nF3 250Gb
1 GB (2x512 MB) Corsiar XMS
eVGA 7800GS
Western Digital 80 GB S-ATA

I didnt say a pretty big difference in bandwidth. Just a big difference, AGP is now considered outdated technology and is being phased out. Thats whay I meant by big difference.
