7900 series were pretty good. They didn't use a lot of power, and only needed single slot coolers. Yet, they were fast.

And volt-moddable.

I got an XFX 7900 GT to 750MHZ on air cooling with a volt mod.

I reckon I use my rig for about 3 main purposes:
1. Gaming (mainly crysis and css)
2. Movies (meh, no preference)
