    7800 gt

    Hi everyone

    I am looking at upgrading my crappy x800 graphics card to either a x1800xl or a 7800gt.
    Are these 2 about the same performance wise?
    Also where is the best (cheapest) place to get 1 of these cards?

    Ideally I was looking to get an XBox 360 but I'm not some idiot that'll pay £500 on Ebay so its upgrading the PC till I can buy the Xbox at retail.

    Many thanks for anyone answering my question

    That aria deal was a limited offer, scan do an OEM (i think it is) "SCAN FX" one for £230, but they also do a retail msi none for just £2 more! (but last time i looked it was out of stock) Look at scan or other good etailers and you should find a good deal. But, keep posting on hexus and you will get free delivery at scan which is one of the main resons we all love it so much lol

    I got mine from pcnextday.co.uk for just over £210. It's out of stock at the moment but keep an eye out for it as it's sure to come back instock.

    It's a great card, it increased my 3Dmark05 score from around 2500 to 7400-7500!!! but that was from a 9800Pro. I can actually play Call of Duty 2 with directx9 shaders.

    7800gt it seems it is then

    Thanks for the quick replies

    After losing my 9700pro to those stupid memory timing problems after less than 2 years I am now wary of buying a graphics card with a short warranty. If poss I'd like to have a warranty longer than a year. Would this seriously limit my choices? Also it would be nice if the 7800 came packaged with Call of Duty 2

    Anyway hope you all can help

    BFG do a lifetime warranty with all their cards. A BFG 7800 GT can be had for around 230 notes

    overclockers are doing a leadtek 7800gt for just over £205. Never used them before because of the reputation for RMA but needs must.

    7800GT looks like a good buy - I wonder how noisy the fans are on these cards. I'm after one that is as quiet as possible - any suggestions?

    I don't think any are available with the silentpipe heatsinks, although I could be wrong. The only 1 that seems to produce above average noise is the Asus extreme model from what I have read

    If anyone is getting one of these for their 7800 seris card make sure it's a rev3 or it won't fit.

    Are these easy to fit? I assume they will invalidate my warranty?
