Ugh.. Newegg ran out of the video card I was going to get.. Would this one be just as good? Compatable? XFX PVT71GUQL3 GeForce 7900GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

Yes, perfectly compatible. Not as good as the eVGA, but will do.

Well, the Albatron card I wouldn't know, it's not a brand I know much about. The XFX cards are good (I have a XFX 7600GT). Get the second one. It's clocked higher, and has VIVO. Too bad the eVGA is out of stock, that one was probably the best, and cheaper.

Seems some people are complaining about the fan being too loud. There seems to be a third-party fix for it, but still consider this problem.

I'm not very savvy when it comes to video cards, so maybe you should wait until someone else gives their input.

Lucky you. It's definitely the best choice. Order quick before they run out again!
