Which 7900GT should I get?
 
Well, I have a choice between a 7900GT from Leadtek, and one from MSI, both for the same price.

Was wondering whether there would be a difference in performance between the 2 manufacturers, and if 1 would overclock better than another. It's pretty hard to find reviews online that refer to a specific 7900 instead of to the whole series in general. Which one of the 2 manufacturers in your opinions have a better, and more reliable support base for instance?

I'm specifically interested in overclocking. Which would overclock better (not taking into account that it comes down to the luck of the draw whether your card is a good overclocker).

Your help is greatly appreciated in this matter! :D

xfx has taken me to great overclocks... but i'm not really sure if xfx is in london, so i may have to step out of this one...

Neither. I would go with the eVGA ko superclocked. It comes at 1.5v stock and can clock pretty high in stock form.

Never had a problem with it, play games almost non-stop.

huh cause almost all the reviews on EVGA and Newegg have people complaining of cards running to hot and artifacting and locking up. Then having to RMA them

The General 07-25-2006 05:15 PM

Yep, I read those reviews to.

But I haven't had a problem with it.

I have not overclocked it, ever.
