Summary: I bought this card for $99.99 plus shipping here. For this price the performance to price ratio is unbeaten as far as mid-range cards go. I'm able to play Crysis in mid settings and 1024x768 witouth much lag. Other than crysis, most games will play at full settings except AA and ASFF smoothly and maybe at 20-25fps with them enabled lightly. Upgrading from a Geforce 6600, this card was a great choice. overall, i'm happy with it and its performance.
Summary: I purchased the 7900GS with my new dell desktop at the beginning of March 2007, its now almost July... I have 2GB Ram, dual core processor. The card works better than I hoped. Company of Heroes on highest settings is smooth. Video editing, and all features of Vista Ultimate work great on my dual 1600X1200 monitors (one flipped vertical, one horizontal). Using Media Center to record/edit TV has made my TiVo seem like a sad waste of money...
Summary: The card is great, i've ran every game i've tried to just fine. The only downside to the card is the texture shimmering. The only way to use anisotropic filtering and not get texture shimmering, is to set the card to high quality, in the performance and images settings. So basically if your a performance guy and that would be me. You cant use anisotropic filtering at all with image quality set to anything below high quality.
Summary: The 7900 GS with 256MB of fast RAM is a good performer ("great" on Windows XP), however, it is unforgiveable that nVidia still doesn't have an SLI driver to allow two of these cards to run in tandem in VISTA. They certainly have had ample time to have drivers ready. Maybe they just want you to spend twice the amount of money, and buy their 8800 Series cards.
Summary: I had my new Dell XPS I got a year ago installed with a 7900 GS. It runs great and the capabilities and performance of the card are very, very good even a year later. This should be a 5 star review then, huh? Not quite. Unfortunately, a fraction of games on the market use techniques that work fine with everything but certain NVidia cards on Vista. I've run into particularly nasty problems with games such as FEAR and Sins of a Solar Empire.
Summary: Nice buy. I'm really satisfied. World of Warcraft at maximum resolution (1680x1050) and max quality and NO PROBLEM. It was my goal, I achieved this I'm satisfied. My machine: Core 2 Duo E6400, Asus P5N-E, 2Gb RAM (Corsair XMS2 800 MHz) and this videoboard. I didn't use DVI.
