Guys,
I am currently running a nice new 7800GT from Evga w/ the core at 470.
I am wondering if it would at all be worth the time and money to upgrade this to the 7900GT w/ core at 550.

I game on a LCD w/ native res of 1280x768 (its widescreen)

Also if any one has seen any reviews of the new 7900GTs that compare to the older 7800GTs please put a link here. :D

The 7900 GT CO is kicking some major ass! And if you have the fortitude to do the VMod, you can get it really smokin'!! I most definately say it is worth the upgrade, especially if you are within your 90 days of purchase of your 7800 GT, then you can do the StepUp program thru eVGA.

If you can Step-Up still, absolutely go for it, there's almost no reason not to. For probably around $40 you'll be getting a new card that is faster than a 7800GTX. The only reason I can think for not Stepping Up, is that IMO the 7800GT CO is a much nicer looking card than the 7900GT GO :p .
