    Wink Which is Better a GeForce 7900GTX 512mb or e-GeForce 8800GTS 640MB

    Just a quick one, which is better as I've been out of the times with 3D card for a wile now...

    Which card would you say is better....GeForce 7900GTX or e-GeForce 8800GTS


    The 7900GTX was a higher spec ed card but a bit older now, but the 8800GTS is newer and higher sires and newer.

    Please shed some light please, Thanks

    The 7900gtx is still good in many games, BUT the 8800gts would eat it alive in many games and is DX10 and more future proof (if theres such a thing.)

    If its a case of buying one or the other i would go for the 8800gts! Like daza said...future proof for DX10 games and a very fast card!

    Just buy 8800GTS and if you didn't like it then you can swap it in for my 7900GTX at anytime with no extra costs

    Im not very good with this stuff but surely all the hype from the 8800GTS and GTX sure its an obvious answer on what card to get, unless your planing to pay less money for good value gaming?

    Although the 640MB version would help if you like to run at high resolutions.
