Video card

Postby Merlin on Thu Dec 22, 2005 11:20 pm

Hey I am looking for a video card unfortunately I can only get it at best buy because I have $200 in gift cards Was thinking of the BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card. Anyone have this I would get two eventually should I spend the money? Or is there somthing better like an ATI solution I don't know of.

i have the bfg 6800 gt oc, it runs great a little bit on the hot side, but i spent $300 for it and it has been worth every penny. that and overclocking the card dosent void the lifetime warranty, the only problem with it is the heat

Bestbuy only lists it as a AGP no PCI X will have to check into this further. any other advice guys?

Thanks

I've seen the BFG 7800GT PCI-e on the shelf at both the laurel and columbia locations. Don't just go by what is listed on thier dumb site. They never keep it up to date.

Video Card looks nice we will see how it performs I plan on maxing out the setting's on all the games I got FARCRY, BF2, COD2, F.E.A.R to see how it performs for $289 and the reviews I have seen it better do a KICK ASS job.
