Default Video card

Is this video card good? I haven't found any reviews (good or bad) on it and I figured you guys would know.

I don't have that particular card but I have used and installed the XFX brand cards for quite some time and have had no problems with them at all. I don't push overclocking but over all the cards have been really stable.

Yeah, I would. XFX is a good company. I looked at its specs and it's pretty good.

I'm not kidding either.. Anyways I gues sI could just throw away the idea that xfx isn't a good brand because I haven't had a problem other then having to reduce the screen rez for guildwars cause it has artifacts but when I get a 7800gtx that should be taken care of :P

I'm thinking saving for a 7800GTX might be better in the long run. Or I could SLI two of the suckers and get about the same specs, but then again, I could buy an 7800GTX and then buy another one of those and SLI them! AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGG! Too many decisions!

Yeah it's good enough to run the current games, which is all that really matters,
