Review: XFX 7950GT

When buying a gaming card, two names spring to mind: nVidia and ATi. One of the higher end cards from nVidia is the 7950GT. Not the most expensive card on the market today, but certainly more than capable of dealing with the most demanding games out there, we’ll get to this later. But it manages to slaughter the CS Source stress test at max settings with full AA and AF at 1280x1024. It scores an average FPS of a measly 146.77. How will it fare in more rigorous tests?

Nice Card $239.00 at newegg after rebate. I would have a hard time convincing myself not to buy a 8800GTS for $269.00 after rebates.

It is a nice card, does the job for me. Considering all it does is run Windows XP Pro. No time for gaming any more.

I was hoping the price was listed in $Aus, glad that it is. Nicely written concise review, thank you Rondog!
