Question 7900gt or 7950gt or 7900gto

Well just like I said, I am at a dilema: I can go with a 7900gt save a few bucks and in a few months lose performance in new game. Or I could go with a 7950gt for $300 nad have the same thing happen but not as soon. I was considering a 7900gto also, and if it wasnt for all the defective ram it would probably be my choice.

What do you guys think. I need your input because I cant figure it out myself.

if you have to go nvidia get the 7950gt

(i dont think the 7900gto are coming back in stock ever)

but there is an asus x1900 crossfire edition for 310 that i think would give you better performance then thoose cards you mentioned

i agree... ( even though the 7900GTO is clearly the better card here) .....so i would go with the 7950GT....that should actually last you for a while.....

You mean never coming back or it just sells out as soon as it's stock.

i wish they would confirm its ending because newegg still shows it as "out of stock"

which leads people to belive it will be back in stock eventually

I have considered the ATI cards, I am not fanboy of nvidia. But I just here so many people have problems with their drivers. Maybe they have improved with AMD now the owner??

EDIT: oops, I was spacing and put this in two differrent posts :amazed:
