Smoking Fast SLI Geforce 7800GTX's!

One thing I have never understood was hardware brand loyalty. I simply go with whatever is fastest (or sometimes best value) whenever it is time to upgrade. Going with a specific company because of brand-loyalty is a bit ridiculous when it comes to computer hardware.

At the moment if you want the best there is only one option; that is a videocard based on nVIDIA's GeForce 7800GTX GPU. It simply blows away the competition and anyone who says otherwise is not giving you the facts.

With a retail price of $579 CDN ($484 US), the MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E is one of the least expensive GeForce 7800GTX videocards on the market. That should not be a surprise though, traditionally MSI has offers better value than its competition. A side note, its amazing that after only a few months since its release, prices have fallen from a MSRP of $599US.

The videocard itself is nothing special to look at and is 100% based on the reference nvidia design. MSI includes a decent software bundle which includes the hot title "Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay" as well as some multimedia applications. Considering a person would have to buy two cards to run SLI, it would be nice for MSI to release its NX7800GTX-VT2D256E with a few different software bundles.

In terms of performance the MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E videocard performed excellently, it was tied with the other GeForce 7800GTX videocards for top spot in every test. If you are into overclocking the NX7800GTX-VT2D256E did pretty well both with a single card and in SLI mode, mind you I hope you have good case cooling should you decide to overclock a GeForce 7800GTX videocard.

If you have been itching to upgrade to the latest, look no further than MSI's NX7800GTX-VT2D256E videocards. It is priced competitively, incorporates a good bundle, and performs just as fast as the rest. What more could you ask for?!?
