Default Re: 10 days til the 7800!!!

At a guess it will retail for close to 400 ...

I'd rather buy a nice TV for that money lol. Graphics cards just aren't worth over 350 to the average man imho...

Haha, I'm still using an FX5200 I don't think I'll be getting a 7800 for a good while now, and then probably only a 8200 when 9800s are out

Thing is, to get the most out of that card (400) you'll have to buy the most powerful processor available (AMD X2- 700), 2gb of fast ram (300), a new 600w psu (60) and probably a new motherboard and some SERIOUS coolage (200). So you're looking at at least 1500 to enjoy the benefits this card will bring, although remember there is no game currently available to test the 6800U, let alone the 7800.

BTW, I've heard the card has 24 pipelines and clock speeds 200mhz higher then the 6800U.
