i dont know if i just have the best 7900gs in the world or what...
i play bf2 at EVERYTHING high, AAx4...and i've run it at 16 w/no real problems(if im feeling like it hah) and i get no lag at all(at 4)...which i assume means that i have a decent framerate. but i hear people say all the time "blah blah blah, 7900gs, blah blah blah, medium settings, blah". not in this post, but in general.
now kids, mine performs excellent wether i have it stock or overclcoked to 550/825+.
i usually run it at stock, as i dont really see the need to oc it unless i am doing a benchmark.
i guess what i am trying to say is...
i love my 7900. thats about it.
and sora, by the way...great post man. makes me want to buy a 500.00 rig just cos. actually it gave me good ideas for my mom's new one that i will build (when k8l comes out for me heh heh heh).
oh yeah we need a dvd rom...
may i suggest:
Newegg.com - LG 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write Black IDE Model GSA-H42N-BK - OEM
LG for 28 bucks. i have this one, and it works just fine.
