Default 7900 GTXs, get them while they're hot!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...TTR18=&ATTR19=

It seems Newegg just got a bunch of 7900GTXs, there is also an EVGA one in stock. Personally I think the X1900 XT is overall a better card, but I know they're some people who only want the 7900 GTX.

But there is a Sapphire X1900XT retail for over a $100 dollars cheaper, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102004

I am getting a X1900 XT to hold me over so I can see both the G80 and the R600. I am probably going to wait till the G81 or R6xx or whatever (I know they are going to make improved versions like they have with the 7 series and X1000 series).

I bought an x1900xt and uprgaded from my 7800gt. Well the x1900xt is faster, but it doesnt seem to run as smoothly as the Nvidia. I wish I would have waited for the 7900gtx's to come out.

Umm the 7900gtx's kick booty.Run smooth and I love them becuase they are running cooler than my 7800gtx's .Never thought about getting x1900 xt , frankly didnt care if they were better just like nvidia better.
