Default What do you guys think of the NVIDIA 7800 Superclocked?

What do you guys think of that GPU? my friend is selling it to me for 60$ it's a perfect card for me considering the games I play. Is it pretty decent? it's for a new build I am making...

here is a link to it:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=nvidia%207800

for $60, i dont think so.
for $15 more you can get an 3850 which beats it by a lot IIRC.

my friend has a 3850, and he could play Crysis on mostly high settings with some medium settings i think.
i think the 3850 is more future proof for games thats coming out that you might wanna try out.

yeah I think I might do that, but that 7800 crushed my graphics card I have on my laptop, I think its a pretty good deal, I could play crisis on that card on high if my screen res was 1024x768 my friend recently gave me a bigg box monitor, it can run 2 whole reses above 1024x768 :P

pretty much any graphics card is better than laptops onboard. Though there are exceptions.
If you want that card, then go for it. But maybe talk him down to like $45-$50. Thats how much i am only willing to pay.
Just know that the 3850 beats the 7800, and if you ever use vista, you will have DX10. My friend played Crysis on Vista, and i think it gets a few frames less than XP, and he played it at 1680 x 1050 resolution on med-high settings and got some pretty good frames.

It's a total ripoff. A used 7800 is not worth that much at all. Considering it can be beat out by a 9600GT pretty easily.
