eVGA`s 7900GT KO - 7900GT To The Max

In order to purchase all of the latest gear (two 7950 GX2 for SLI), you have to have a lot of money.  Many of us cannot afford the latest and the greatest.  Fortunately, you donít have to spend a lot of money to get a good performing graphics card these days.  Today we are looking at the eVGA 7900GT KO and run it through the paces to see how well this $300CDN card can perform in todayís games.  We also compare this card to a $200CDN 7600GT to see if your extra $100 is well spent on the faster card.  How fast is it?  Is it worth the money?  Take a read of our review to find out for yourself.

When you realize that a reference 7900GT outperforms a 7800GTX and then take into account that eVGA has clocked it up even further, you can't help but be impressed.  If you're an enthusiast, you'll probably push the card even further and once again, eVGA leaves us impressed.  We were able to push this GPU core another 95MHz and the Samsung GDDR3 memory clocked up an additional 160MHz.  At the end of the day we were able to run the core 32% above reference speeds and the memory was rock solid when clocked 26% above reference speeds.  This makes the eVGA 7900GT KO one of the best valued 7900GT's on the market today.

As always, your feedback and questions are welcome right here.
