hmmm could only find benchmarks for the 7800gt and gtx

I can't comment on price, but the performance is more than adequate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I've had an MSI 7900GT with 256Mb video RAM for about 6 months now, and it's a terrific card. I'm able to run the game at Perfect with very little stutter or aggravation, besides the circles on the water thing.

$200 US is an excellent value.

cheers

The 7900 GT line of graphics boards along with the 7950's are the best board to get before move up to the 8800 boards IMO for gaming. If youre not big on Vista and DX10 then the 7900GT is a good buy.

Also the 8800 boards may require a 700W PSU and double you electricity bill if the computer is kept on all day.

I have a 7600GT and wonder if I should also get a 7900GT.

I have the 7900 running at perfect on maximum settings. The latest drivers remove the black circles from the water.

I just installed a 7950 GT with 512MB RAM (Leadtek) and it screams past my old 6800 Ultra. Better image quality, no slow downs, but now my CPU and RAM are bottlenecking my system, so rather than sink more money into this AMD socket 939 platform, I'm overclocking it.

Well, I'm considering dropping a new VC in one of my kids' systems and make him wait another year (maybe) before I build him a new one.

He's got a P4 2.8, 1gb RAM and an aging 5900Ultra. Obviously, it's an AGP rig and I have no big issue putting a decent VC into it to prolong its life by another 6-12 months.

I'd rather not spend more than $175-200 on it though and have been looking for a simple 6800GT or something of the sort. Any suggestions?
