The Nvidia 7600gt is another good mid range video card if you want to save some money.


BTW: Please refrain from starting another Nvidia vs. ATI thread. There are enough of them as it is.

You're not going to get a 7900GT in any kind of respectable $800 PC.

lol there are more things he has to buy for a computer
such as hard drives and cd/dvd drives
and he might need windows xp which runs from like 70-130 depending on what edition.

these add at least 200 - 250 more if you go with low end on both the HDD and cd/dvd and go with home edition(which i wouldnt suggest) for his windows OS

dude u cant buy 1 card from nvidia, and just because that ONE card that YOU bought sucked, doesnt mean EVERYTHING else does, and same goes for ATI. You are by far the most narrow minded ignorant fool that ever ventured on this forum, maybe, but ur very close. You cant judge a brand by 1 dud that you happened to buy. Nvidia and ATI are neck-n-neck, and they cost almost the same. the 7900GTX and X1900XTX are each better at certain games, but in general its a tie.

yea actually i have talked to people that work at microsoft, vista testers, and tons of non n00bs and most of them say to use ati..but if you want to have a crappy g/c than be my guest, don't bother me a bit..and i NEVER have used a g-force(i don't like buying a g/c that is walmart's brand of choice) and i don't ever plan on using one...

and a 100 buck nvidia is equal to a 80buck ati(and that is a proven fact most of the matter except for n00bs that HAVE NO IDEA what they are doing)!!!!

quite frankly nvidia has much better gpu's then ATI

sure there are exceptions but on a whole nvidia has the "best bang for the buck"

if you want to explain why you think ati is better then go for it

oh yeh if you want to stay under 800 im not sure you can afford to get a 7900gt and a decent amd64
that bang for your buck is banging your head a little to hard cause really nvidia's gpu is equal to like half of ati's , i don't care if they are cheaper but you are realy getting junk for how much you pay..
