This card is undoubtedly the market leader as of right now. It outstrips, outperforms and out-frames the 7800GTX at this high resolution. The quality that the card delivers compared to its nvidia equivalent is stunning (an adjective I\'ve used a bit in this review, I\'m sure). Paying PC games has never been faster or looked better for me than now.

I would not hesitate to give this card top marks. The only thing that lets it down is the slightly dodgy ATI drivers...oh and of course the small factor of that pricetag.

Definitely a recommended OC3D Card!


£433 @ SCAN
£445 @ Tekheads
£456 @ ARIA
£458 @ Overclockers UK

* Very fast at a very high res
* Quality far outperforms its top-range rival
* Good price compared with the 7800GTX 512mb
* AVIVO is a great bonus

* Expensive
* ATI's beta drivers need some work

OC3D Recommended Score 9
