Default EVGA 7800 GTX 'KO'

Nothing special as regards specs (490/1300MHz), but check out the dual-sided heatsink :drool: :-

No, it's mine.

If you read the article, the 'KO' is basically another OC'ed GTX with a fook off aluminium enclosure for superior cooling.

Looks impressive but BFG can do the same thing with less.... How come? Does BFG do retail trade because i've asked alotta I.T stores in Australia about 10 and they don't know much if anything about BFG? Retail Europe or States maybe?

Do you think that Nvidia will own the new Radeon core?

You can get a gun, ammo and a $900 video card at Walmart. God damn they sell anything that belongs to them, give a decade or so Walmart will sell clones... Can't seem to get BFG retail here in Australia, we get some smaller builders like Sparkle and Powercolor here which i don't think places outside of the Asia region get (correct me if i'm wrong!)

Well dont complain too much in my experience Powercolor is a great manufacturer. They provide top quality products (especially their ram) so even thought they make ATI cards don't knock them off too much

But anyways I'd like a super duper fancy video card for my computer
/me is jealous of Doom

I'd say eVGA, even if it's not the KO series
