    hands down go for the 7800, you won't regret it. I regret my graphics card choice, and I heard good things about the GLH edition .

    An x1800xt is by far the superior card. 512mb on a 7800gt is wasted and I doubt that there would be a marked improvement over a 256mb 7800gt to justify the extra £70 over a standard 7800gt (that will also overclock)

    x1800xt's can be had for @ £285 now. 7800gt's are sub £200, so the choice is one of cash and totally yours Both are excellent cards for the current outlay.

    That Sir, is bull ****.

    A X1800XT takes a 7800GTX to the cleaners, so whats it gonna do to a GT with 512mb of memory, of which you will be paying a stupid premium for.

    Its a no brainer really...........

    EDIT, just looked on komplett and it's GTX speeds, with 512mb of memoy, so why call it a GT? Anyways for that price you can get a X1800XT.

    I'm not going to argue with that, but you need to provide some frame of reference. In what respect is it superior? Image fidelity? (likely, but not 'by far') Driver support? (unlikely ) Feature implementation? (plausible... my x800xt handled soft shadows WAY better than my 7800GT) Speed? (no. it's not.)

    Not necessarily, but sort of. The performance on this card is very similar to the GTX, but it does fare really well in Doom3 engine games, which love that 512mb.

    Agreed smokey you get a bit heated

    Having used all the latest gen cards I must say that ATI's cards have some awesome features and that quality is very good

    Nvidia's drivers for me are clearer and easier to use. I hate the way ATI use .NET - it feels clunky. The nvidia cards do things a different way to ATI cards with a different "feel" to the graphics.

    The X1800XT 512mb is nowhere near as impressive as the X1900XT/XTX as far as speed + quality. The ease at which it gets those graphics on screen is simply amazing and the quality is also very good

    The Nvidia cards are very good, make no mistake about that

    Smokey you are sounding very much like an ATI fanboy. I LOVE my X1900XT-X but having had nvidia hardware too I know that BOTH sides are excellent and both sides have their merits

    Maybe take a bit more of a balanced view?

    a 256mb 7800gt is a great bang per buck card - the x1800xt is a superior card, but also costs more. If you have the cash get an x1800xt...if not save the money and get a regular 7800gt 256mb
