View Full Version : Choosing a new card!

10-26-06, 10:13 AM
Been hitting the forums lately trying to make up my mind about a new video card. I've narrowed it down a bit and wanted your opinions.

first card
Evga 7950gt 512mb 259.99

second card
SAPPHIRE Radeon X1900XT 256MB 219.00 (oem, has standard return policy)

third card (the low cost option)
SAPPHIRE Radeon X1950PRO 199.99

so which to choose? I'm leaning towards the 7950gt since its more future proof (512mb, step up program etc) although if I find a $250 GTO I will just get that and forget the rest.

Yeah, I like your option one also for the 512 and step-up possibility. But, like the other post mentions, if you don't mind used you'll probably finds lots of 79xx cards for sale here once the G80 hits (in about 2 weeks supposedly).

I'd go with the 7950GT too ..

I'm tempted to just buy it from tikiman, I don't doubt his being a honest seller, but I'm always weary of buying something from a person instead of a business. There is just more safety with regards to getting a replacement if something goes awry or at the very least getting my money back (ie Credit card Protection).
