Faster!

EDIT: Actually I think they might be pretty even.

ok I read a ton of reviews. X1900GT holds steady just fine, my money wasnt wasted.

MSI 7900GTX for $379.99 at ZZF after rebate. This is an awesome deal!

I dont think that will work. the reson thay disabled them was because of damige to the card during fabracation. I think the only way its stable is if the 4 pixle shaders and 1 vertex shader are locked.
but try it anyway and let us know what hapens.:D

Yea thats what they said about the vanilla 6800s lol. And look at my sig hehe 16x6

Even if i cant reenable pipes, im gonna slap my NV5 Silencer Rev 2 onto this bad boy and o/c the heck out of it. All it takes is a little removal of some plastic to make it fit =)

Noone else has ordered/is thinking about ordering this card? This is the card I've been waiting for! Cheaper than 7900GT, more than 7600GT. BTW, what is the cheapest S939 SLI mobo that overclocks well?

BTW, what is the cheapest S939 SLI mobo that overclocks well? most of us are buying 7600 GTs and wating for the G80s. NOTE: this excludes jakup as he has been quoteed saying that the 7950gx2 in quad sli is a great card to have for over the summer untill the G80 comes out.:D

The GIGABYTE GA-K8N-SLI Socket 939 motherboard is only $79.99 and it over clock good ,even the windows program easytune5,lets you overclock in windows and works good.

I'm selling off my MSI 7600GT and ordered an eVGA 7900GS. I'll tell you if it was worth it.

If Gainward were to get back in the US market, they would probably sell a truckload of cards. Dont really know why they left in the first place.

I bought the eVGA 7900 GS KO a little over a week ago. Awesome card. I couldn't be happier with the performance for the price.
