View Full Version : Noob question on XFX 7800 GTX

06-30-05, 03:39 PM
Hi, was hoping someone could give me a little help.

Am contemplating getting the 7800 card, but am kind of worried about lack of TV out. I am using the FX5900 and connect to my TV a whole load at the moment and would hate not being able to anymore. So i was wondering if it is possible for me to get a cheap PCI card with TVout (like an MX or even the FX5200) and run it at the same time as the 7800GTX. Intuitively i doubt this is going will work, but i thought i'd check anyway. Even it can't work, i'd be open to suggestions as to other relatively inexpensive ways to connect to my TV (under $70 preferably)
If not, i'll probably have to wait for a 7800 with TVout built in.

Thanks in advance

the 7800 is a VIVO, that should suit you.

Thanks for the reply Mesce, but i've never heard of VIVO before, could someone tell me what it is and how it works? Would be appreciated.

Thanks, TJ

VIVO means video in video out. The 7800 is capable of connecting to your TV.

Excellent! Thanks very much for your help. No reason not to get the 7800 now (except the price tag is going to leave a very big hole in my bank account!)

Thanks again Mesce and Joker.
