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.Intel i7-2600k

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.Intel 3570k 4.3ghz~Asus P8Z77-V pro~TRUE spirit 140 powerMushkin Blackline 2x4gbGtx 980 ti amp extremeDell U2713HMSamsung 840 Evo 500gb~Spinpoint F3 1tbPioneer BDR-206Corsair AX850Fractal Midi R2Leopold Tenkeyless~Deathadder 2013Harman Kardon HK990~Denon AH-D7000

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.Antec P182 w/ 3 Yate Loon D1SL-12
