Exclamation 7900gto

I saw a review for it and this thing owns the 7950GT and is a hair behind the GTX. $245!!! I want to drop my 7900GT for dead lol.

dude if you keep on reading it they post a link toa guy who bought it and hes having alot of problems with it....DUH

im not an expert by all means but it says it has locked bios so you cant flash it to a 7900gtx and they say that on applications it doesnt recognize the card and you cant run sli with it.

idk thats just from what ive read on those threads

couple people over at hardforum have this card already and are very happy with it, performing better than a 7900gt, its has 7900gtx core in it, some say 1.4 ram, others say 1.2, either way I have read some really good oc's from the ram so far.
