Default 7800GS or no?

I'm wanting to buy the 7800GS. Now, I've heard that it's buggy as hell, however, not sure if that's true or not. So, I need help on choosing which 7800GS to get, or not get at all.

if you have the money go for it, but i suggest you get a 6800gs or something until you make the switch to pci-e/// the 6800gs is nearly as ood but like 100 moneys less.

Well, if you still go with AGP isnt the x850xt better then the 7800gs? Maybe you should go with the x850xt then

x850xt is not better the 7800gs beat it in benchmarks and tests etc. in fact, it even beat the PE! and its cheaper. but i still suggest 6800gs until you get pci-e.

Honestly I prefer nVidia. Ati just makes me mad, have had some bad problems with them, although they are both cards that are fairly close, I do believe mr.monger is right and I would for the 7800GS...for someone who is stuck in the AGP era like me

I think I'm going to buy it. Although, a little hesitant. Any other suggestions or comments on the 7800GS?

its fine its the best one you can get the XT PE its pretty close to it but i think is more expensive so the 7800GS would be good

My goal for owning this video card is to play FEAR on high settings. Do you think it can achieve this?

My opinion is that Nvidea makes great drivers. To fully utilize their hardware. Unlike Ati. So, I really dont beleive that a card by them would be buggy. Unless, however, if they rushed it to the market to beat Ati in some sort of race.

I say spend some money for a PCI-E compatible motherboard (the GS is AGP only right? I don't know), and then save the rest and some more for a newer graphics card since the 7800 series is probobly going to be replaced in the near, near future.
