    7900 GT Question

    I'm looking at newegg to purchase a egva 7900gt.

    Newegg 7900 GT


    I notice there are 2 versions:

    N563 with a Core clock of 500MHz and Memory Clock of 1500MHz

    and for $70 more the: N565 with a Core clock of 550MHz and Memory Clock of 1580MHz

    Am I correct in assuming that the N563 is an overclocked version of the N563 and is it worth the $70 or can I o/c the N563 myself to the specs of the N565.

    Thanks

    I guess it depends on if u believe 50mhz+ is worth $70, or if u can't oclock will u be happy with 500mhz. I would just check out the reviews and see what the different frame rates are. You're looking at oclocking %10.

    both cards on newegg or oc'd versions of the stock card. evga makes three cards, the vanilla, the co, and the co superclocked. the co is the cheaper card you see there.

    stock speeds are actually 450 gpu and 1320 effective ram

    for 299 the co is a nice buy, however it appears to be out of stock. that's actually the card i'm waiting to get directly from evga as a trade up.

    hopefully they get some out soon.

    as a part of the evga community, I can honestly say that wed had this exact discussion over the last few days concerning al the new cards. do not pay for the more expensive card. if you have a generally high quality PC surrounding your video card, you should experience no problem in acheiving the higher clock speeds. however, thre have been problems where the superclocked card cannot run at their clock settings, so buy the slowest one and just OC it.
