Default Re: Nvidia 7950GT superclocked or 8800

Definetly go with the 8800. Try to get the GTX even the superclocked version. I don't see a 7950 beating that. And it is DX10. IMO it's a waste of money to buy the 7950 with DX10 on it's way.

7950gt is comparable to the 8800gts 320mb <- if your not planning on running insane resolutions this is a great card to look into. will not cost you much more than the 7950 and i will actually probably perform better. I bought my 7950 and I'm wishing I had an 8 series card now after seeing all my buddies getting them and how well they perform.

edit: only bout 20 bucks more on newegg than the one you want and its the same brand.

8800GTX, the 7950GT can't keep up with it at high resolutions and shader intensive games.

No way 8800's beat the crap outta the 7950GT even my GTS is better than the 7950GX2. There newer unified shaders DX10, and there great OCers even with stock cooler.
