Do they have another make like EVGA you could go for in the same price range? Often they will substitute at request.

eBay: e-GeForce 7900GS KO 256MB with fan PCI-Express (item 290128443797 end time Jun-19-07 20:11:01 PDT)

start biddin...23 hours to go....or just wait till like the last minute and snipe it. people really hate it when you do that to them after they have been thinking for six days that they were going to win. personally, it gives me pleasure to dash hopes and dreams lol.

Looks like an odd offname brand there. EVGA or another make would go past any cheap cards. BFG the brand you ordered is up there as well.

Don't worry about what the clock speed of a 7900GS is. As long as it has an Nvidia 7900GS chip in it will overclock similar to the EVGA or other. The cooler may not be as good on it but you can always get the RX fan off newegg one of these days and that should allow you to take any 7900GS brand and hit like 600/850.

My emachines did come with a stock fan on my mobo. Would that help keep it cool. So I have a powersupply which has a fan on the bottom...i think all of them do. A fan thats attached to the back and another fan in the middle.
If i get another one im not sure where it would fit...and how much would that cost...

Core Clock 525MHz (vs. 450MHz standard)
Memory Clock 1320MHz
RAMDAC Dual 400MHz
Those are from the BFG.

What do you think I could get it at withought buying additional parts. I dont wanna max it out, just enough to improve settings a little.
