Question Quick Question

hey,

im looking to buy a video card today....at the moment i have the 7600GS 512mb and im looking to get the 7900GS and im wondering about the 7950GT....because im in Australia is it really worth the extra $150 for the 7950GT over the 7900GS

prices

$300AU = 7900GS Asus

$450AU = 7950GT ViewPower

thanks for the help

$150? Not really. Just over clock the GS a tad and you get a GT.

yep, It definately doesn't justify 150 dollars. 7900gs.

It should be about $100 USD...

Still it's not worth it.
