Thread: XFX 7900 GTX 512 MB Graphics Question

    XFX 7900 GTX 512 MB Graphics Question

    Heya everyone,
    I'm thinking of boosting my computers video hardware *and possibly ram...* up a lot. What I am planning on doing is buying two 7900 512 MB graphics cards and putting them in SLI. I'll cool them with acetel blocks from dangerden. (This is in a asus a8n SLI board) I'm wondering if it will really be worth it in current time and in the long run. I'm upgrading from a eVGA 256 7800 GT card. I'll get the funds for these parts by selling a few things on ebay, psp, ipod, another computer.

    Thoughts?

    The 7900s are pretty damn fast cards, but your current one is also fast as all h*ll. Just something to consider, why don't you just buy another 7800GT and SLI those.

    Hm, I do want to be set down the road though. I'm not sure what the difference will be on higher quality games from the 2 256mb gts to the 2 512 gtx's... Hard choice, lots of money :P.

    It you really lay it all out and figure the $ to performance gain by doing the upgrade you will see very little change. Now if you want the bragging rights DO IT!....lol

    I think I'm just going to not SLI anyways for awhile. The reason:
    can't duel monitor with sli, meaning, I can do my lcd mod....

    My 7800 gt is good enough anyways atm.

    If you plan on 7900 GTX's, dont do it. Get the 7900 GT and Volt mod it to the 7900 GTX. only thing is that itll only have less ram.
