Hello all, Im getting all my parts together ready for ordering and im stuck on a video card. I want a evga 7800gt but im not sure which one i should buy?

That one has the fastest clock speed so i guess that one is the best.

Does the evga video cards run on nvidia drivers?

Or does evga have their own separate dirvers, I heard that this causes problems with games or something? I am not sure though. Anyone wanna help me out here

Even if they do you can use either the Nvidia or Evga drivers.
