[Review] eVGA GeForce 7900 GT KO Superclocked

Hi Everyone,
I have the 7900gt Ko Superclocked Edition video card from EVGA.
The card is 256 mb with 1580mhz memory speed and 580mhz core speed.

To be completely honest i was a little disappointed at the cards performance, it wasn't as crisp as i had hoped. Since installation I have come to notice that it is probably the games that aren't so crisp, the card can do the highest settings of the games (Counter-Strike Source, Half Life 2, Day Of Defeat Source) with ease.

An interesting and confusing thing i have found about the card is that during gameplay, the frames per second vary greatly, sometimes the card will be as low as 70, other times it will stay up in the 250-270 fps range which is amazing.

All in all, since the card is cheaper and faster than the 256mb 7800gtx i'd recommend this card for average gamers looking for good graphics. Think of this as well, if you buy EVGA, you are elligible for their step-up program which allows you to get your cards purchase value added towards another EVGA card.

Here is a link to a pdf file with detailed specifications:

Most definately.
It wasnt worth the money before, but now that it has come down in price it is.
I get around 270 fps in counterstrike source, and this is on a fairly busy server 10+ people.
In terms of graphics, the card is no better than my 6800gt which i still regaurd as the best card ever.
I shouldnt say there is no change though,
I dont play high end stuff, i play css with hdr maps thats it.
It looks as good as it can on those, but i cant vouch for more intensive games.

Make sure you get the eVGA card though, it is 80 mhz faster than the others, plus you get the step up program, hope it helps.

Sorry for the delay, as you might have noticed, i am not on osnn at all anymore :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
