Re: Geforce: 8600 vs 7900
I have a 7900 GXT and a 7950 GX2 and I really like them both. Unless you can afford a highend 8xxx series I would go for the higher performance of the 79xx series right now.
This is not to say I would not like a 8800 but there is not enough gain for me to spend the money right now. By the end of the year there will be a bunch of new hardware (and I hope games) that might make it worth while for me to upgrade.
Asus M8Z77-V Deluxe
G-Skill 1600 16G
EVGA 670 GTX
2 Corsair Force 3 120G (Raid 0)
2 x Seagate 1T 6G
2 Samsung SyncMaster T260HD Monitors
Thermaltake Level 10 UGK
Silverstone Olympia OP1000 1000W
Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
