Default Go7900GS

Is the Go7900GS good? I've been looking into dell laptops and that card doesnt seem to be to expensive. Figured I'll get the best I can get with my budget.

They make the 7900GS, but it's for OEM's only right now. I think Dell is the only one to have access to it.

Dell is the only way to access it :up:

It's a 20 pipelines card, forget about the speeds, but the regular, 256MB, GDDR3, 256 bit, etc.

I figured the card was worth the cash. I know its overkill for what I'll be doing, but at least I'll have it if I need it. LOL

*Side Question* What's the lowest grade laptop card available that would play WOW at all the highest settings?

Dude, Gainward makes the 7800GS+, which is the G71-core from the 7900GT in AGP format. BUT, I don't think they are sold in the US. Have a look around, you might just find one. This is it:

I'm running the one with the 7800GT core, just below that one. It kicks *ss my son!
