This post has been edited to correct an error. The reported post was sent in such a manner as to direct to the wrong post. I have since spoke to the person reporting this and got it cleared up.

Hahhaha... the 7900GTX topped the x1900XTX by a decent margin, and it's MUCH less money.

Oh for the love of Gpd people! Will you shut the hell up and listen to yourselves? The 7900GTX DOES NOT BEAT THE X1900XTX!!!! Holy crap. COnspirate shut up. YOu clearly haven't seen the benchmarks and don't know what in the world you're talking about. I guess I'll have to show you kids the posts I made to PROVE. notice that little word there, PROVE!!! that the 7900GTX DOES NOT WIN IN ANY BENCHMAKR AGAINST THE X1900XTX HEAD ON!!! Holy crap people, you should really read up before you make really stupid and irrlevent fanboy threads and posts. Jeeze laweeze...And Jac006 you should darn right know that NVIDIA is losing right now when it comes to Top Dawg in the video card world. You made a freakin' thread on Quad SLI, and then stated how the 7900GTX is better. But didn't even check back on the thread to see how clearly wrong you were. For the love of God people, take 15 minutes out of your FanBoy lives and read the darn benchmarks. It really isn't hard, and it clears EVERYTHING up.

Hmmm....Wow, in nearly every benchmark the X1900XTX wins. Gee, I wonder why, maybe because, **GASP** it's better?

Sorry to burst your bubbles fanboys, but the 7900GTX does not beat the X1900XTX. Better luck next time.

i don't think you can say anyone is going to beat anyone, much of computer technology advances are like a game of leap frog, where one company constantly takes the leand and then is snatched away by another and then snatched back and so on, when the GeForce MX420 came out everyone was like OMG TAHTS SO COOL, but look where we are now...

If that's the case, then why live? Isn't life about grabbing the chance? Experiencing? Or just letting things pass on by?

Good point.

However the debate is one the current top cards out right now. And from benchmarks and reviews, we can conclude that the X1900XTX is the best card out. Despite what fanboys say, because they'll come back with, "Well two 7900GTs in SLI is better!" or somethign stupid, that's completely off the general topic. The topic is comparing the best card from one manufacturer to the others top card. Not two VS one. That's unfair. But hey, fanboys will be fanboys.

Sorry, but it kind of irritates me when people make claims that are completely false, and then provide absolutly no facts or reviews or anythgin at all to back up their claims! Seti, you know how irritating it is. I guess I got a little to over-the-top. Next time I won't be so careless. Dearest apologies Seti.

Anywho...

Next time guys, let's provide links. I provided I believe 10-20 links on multiple benchmakrs. But I think they got edited. I'll post the link tot he article to show you all my point. Which is, "The X1900XTX beats the 7900GTX head-to-head in roughly 9 out of 10 benchmakrs."

Link
http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/03/...launch_mayhem/


Also, try not to focus on SLI and CrossFire, as they're both a VERY unrealistic setup unless you're using lower-end cards. Focus on the X1900XTX and 7900GTX head-to-head.

Talk about getting carried away...both the 7900 and the X1900 are on par with each other. Neither really kills the other.
