    What 7800GT to get?

    I will be upgrading my vid card from dual 6600GT's to a 7800GT very soon. What I'd like to know is what company has the best reputation and quality with the 7800GT's? Also while looking at the different cards I noticed EVGA has several models of the 7800GT with model numbers ranging from 515 - 518. Is there and difference between them other than clock and memory speeds?

    EVGA 7800GT. Can score one for about $275 after rebate. Scores pretty well and they have a lifetime limited warranty.

    Evga N516. It says 445\1070 but mine came 470\1100 plus Quake 4 was in the box rather than being something I had to send away for. I don't know what kind of deals are going now but at the time this was the best deal in my opinion.

    The eVGA ones come really nice stock OCed, and you can bring it decently farther as well. Their step-up program is also a great future addition, but for the future of 3 months though. Mine came stock at 470/1100 and it goes to 490/1230 3dMarks benchable, stock heatsink of course.
