I know this is off topic, but is the PS3 supposed to have better graphics than the 360, even with a less powerfull graphics card?

I'd say go with a 7900GT as well. The 8800's are out but they're insanely expensive. I think the 7900GT should be way more than enough for you and should be able to rival the 360.

Default Re: Graphics card that is as good as the 360

Ok, will try and get the money to do that. Maybe another $60 I think. I can do that. And one more thing, is the 7900GS better than the 7800GTX? Either way I'm going to try and get a 7900GT. But if I cant get the money I will get a 7900GS.

Also, if I were to get 2 7900GTs why couldnt that do DX10 cause it would have almost as much power as a 8800 right? Or even if someone had 2 7950GX2s that should run DX10, but IDK. Must be something else, I dont understand all the parts of graphics cards. The geforce 7 series is supposed to drop in price soon correct? I might wait til than to get mine. But let me tell u its hard running a voodoo 3, with vista, I cant even play some of the games windows came with cause of hardware acceleration or something, lol. But anyway...

the 7800gtx is better than 7900GS i believe.

and direct x 10 isnt about how much power you have, its about the technology included on the card.

Oh, that makes sense, but who would pay that much for a graphics card, lol. I wish they rented computer games, than you would get a chance to use the cards to the full extent with all the new games.
But I want to run battlefield 2142 on full settings, and newer games too, except DX10.

just wait for DX10/vista to buy a card.

and they couldnt rent comp games cuz ppl would copy them and the cd keys are unique to one comp.

I dont think I'll have enough money to buy a directX 10 even when they get cheaper. Unless they go down to $200. Which wont happen.
