QUOTE(simalarion @ Nov 9 2005, 05:54 AM)Oh damm - this must be the biggest ATi fanboy lineup ever, even if nVidia so clearly has better card now

7800gt cost less and is a huge overklokker - better value than x1800xl

7800gtx is by far better than x1800xl and cost the same
7800gtx 512 ( 600 - 1800!!that will be in stores before x1800xt will take the thrown easy and that before they even made the release of it

x800gto - gt though is good value for money, but 6800gs is worth tho take a look at to, though its cost more

Edit: and crossfire havent even been testet out by public yet, still you guys yell out that its better, how on earth would you know, cause ati tells you? , well nvidia has much of the samme yadayada bullshitt comercial going on on their homepage to, but that dont make it completly true does it?

You're really defending nVidia... Don't call other people fanboys when you write stuff like this, that's just dumb.

And double lol

Im i a fanboy hahaha

I buy whats best and if you say x1800xt your not only fanboys but blind to. 7800gtx 512 is jumping all over it, it wil be released and in store monday 14 nov, and x1800xt still have problems - actualy zero cards made it to Norway\scandivia and wont arive before end of november.

They had great cards in 9700 - 9800 serie but this round nvidia is breaking them, and it hurths Ati bad, just look at their numbers

Ati now only got x800gto wich is good fps for the money

Ps: 7800gtx 512 gets 10110 3dmark 05 at 600 - 1800. So dream on if you want but it wont help ATi

Dual X1800xt's will still not beat the new NVidia card. The 7800GTX Extreme 512MB with 512 bit graphics.

can you prove that?....not trying to be a fanboy here, but I'm just wondering where you get that information from? my own research tells me that the X1800XT competes favorably against the 256mb 7800GTX, winning some and losing some, and the same can be said for the 512mb 7800GTX. There is no evidence, that I could find, that a single 512mb 7800GTX can outperform two X1800XT's in a crossfire configuration, and I bet you couldn't find any either.

7800GTX 51MNB version is a good card.. but too expensive IMHO its not worth that $800 dollars.. /wacko.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wacko.gif' />
