ok so im buying a 7900gt this weekend for my computer. I figure i could sell my 6800gs for 100 at the end of the summer and lose 100 or sell my 7900 for 200 and still lose a 100 but have a hell of a nice video card for the summer.

Heres the dilema

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Order=PRICED&Page=1&N=2010380048+4018+1305520548&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=48

newegg has about 10 different models of the 7900 at different clocks for all around 300 bucks

Im planing to pull the heatsync put on my watercooling and do the 1.4 v volt mod so Bassically I want the most overclockable or fastest hardware at the best price, idk if i should get a extreem edition and overclock or get the standard, extreem implying its a gold sample type card but who knows

Please! someone help my find a card

if you planning to do vmod and watercool, i suggest you get the cheapest card to do it.

If they still have that Evga 7900GT KO for $288 then get it ,it has 1.4ns memory on it and it overclocks on the memory like cazy at least my two did ,with no voltmods my memory went to 1950 on one card and 1860 on the other.

If you are asking me what my 7900GT KO's default voltage are it is 1.2v I have not not did no kind of mod on it ,One will clock to 565/1950 and the other will overclock to 575/1860,But I am thinking about it I have already order two Zalman VF900-Cu ,I am thinking about doing the 1.3v mod so I can reach over 600 on the core.
