    Default New released VC's what do I do?!!!

    Is it worth it to sell a 7800gtx to upgrade to any of these? They all
    support 2560 x 1600 resolution and hdtv compatible!
    xfx geforce 7900gt or gtx: probably best card out there
    xfx geforce 7600GT: similar to above only not quite as good and less
    expensive, i have 2 systems now, maybe for the other?

    The 7900GTX would be a decent upgrade and costs around what you may have paid for your 7800. The clocks are 650/1600 vs 430/1300. There are many overclocked cards that come running 690/1750 but some people are having problems with artifacts after playing for an hour or so (obvious heat buildup)
    I get ~9200 in 3dmark '05 with my overclocked (still on air) 7800GTX, the 7900GTXs are getting just over 10k. So for me (and you if you overclock), it's not a worthy upgrade at this point, maybe I'll spring for the next gen Nvidia card. However, if someone was offering me top dollar for my 7800, I'd probably go ahead and do it.

    What I don't understand is how my '05 score can jump about 1200 with just 50 more mhz, yet the 7900, with its 150+mhz on top of me, can only get another 1000-1200.
