I still fail to understand why so many people on this forum feel they have to slam people so hard for spending money the way they see fit. It's no one's business as to what they buy or when. Do I agree in upgrading from a 7800 GTX to a 7900 GTX...no, but I certainly will not abuse the guy for doing so.
And then there is this that has been bugging me for a while. I have been looking at benchies and such and reading threads on here and most people here say that the 7900GT or 7900 GTX would OWN the 7800 GTX. I have always disagreed. When compared to the 7900GTX and the 1900XTX in bechmarks reviews, the 7800GTX was maybe 2-5% percent behind and even came out higher in some benches.
So I would say that the 7800 GTX 512 has not been owned by anything. Maybe on paper, but that don't mean squat in the real world. Here are two perfect examples of real world instances.

yeah i agree. there's absolutely no change in graphics besides maybe a couple frames faster between those two cards.
So again, if these two quotes are true fact, I once again contest that the 7800 GTX 512 has been owned. Bettered slightly but not whooped to death. Just my 2 cents.
