The 7900GT KO is by far the best bang-for-the-buck card on the market today. I don't care what anyone says. The best videocard on the market for a price of under $300 and SINGLE-SLOT COOLING? Are you freakin kidding me?!

I love the 7900GTX, but can't stand the Dual-Slot cooling. It's STUPID to SLI the 7900GTX or X1900XT/X. And the X1900GT is no match for a 7900GT KO, even at the 7900GT KO's stock speeds. I hear it can be unlocked to a X1900XT, but haven't heard any confirmations.

What can be unlocked to a X1900XT? You weren't very clear there as the most recent card mentioned before you said "it" was the 7900GT KO, and I know that can't be unlocked to a X1900XT.

What else would he be talking about, the X1900XTX? The 7900GT?

Yeah Single Slot Cooling is a big plus for people in need of PCI slots

It's weird. I put the comma in front of the 7900GT KO which implied that I meant the stock speeds of the X1900XT. Fixed that. That was the only problem though, the rest of the paragraph was perfectly fine.

But please...a 7900GT unlocking to a X1900XT? Like Pzero said, what else would I be talking about.

Sorry, I keep forgetting about the X1900GT, I guess I read that totally wrong ... Even though I read it twice. I stayed up all night so I'm not quite thinking at my fullest.


Yeah, I read it as X1900XT instead of GT.

It's a totally forgotten-about card, and for good reason. The 7900GT beats the X1900GT by a lot in just about all games, except HL2 and Serious Sam 2. I think there are like 2 reviews for all the cards combined on Newegg.

If it unlocks to a X1900XT/X, that would make it quite a good deal. But I just read that on another forum, no confirmation of it.

Then again, the 7900GT KO overclocks to better than a 7900GTX, so go figure.

7900GT regular is 450/1320.

7900GT KO is 580/1580.

A common overclock for the KO is 650/1800. That's a 7900GTX, pretty much.

Some of the highest-clocked 7900GTs have been 750/1850. That gets you a 12000+ in 3DMark05.

The 7900GT KO costs $290.

So...$580 gets you performance that's better than Dual 7900GTXs or any other sort of videocard combination. Get some nice cooling, though.
