  1. Hi guys, i recently picked up a new PCI-e graphics card from my local computer shop.

    Its called Xpertvision GeForce 7900GS

    I payed £108, basically im wondering was it worth the money, and how long do you think it will be a GOOD card?

    I should of really asked this BEFORE i picked up the card lol but it seems pretty good, i play F.E.A.R. Combat and Oblivion on maximum graphics.

    What are your opinions guys?

    Thanks!

    Its a decent card, and if it plays the games you play fine then that is all that matters.

    It's a current-gen graphics card and will play almost all the new games out there very smoothly on full graphical detail without problems.

    i.e. until the the DX10 games come out...

    Which is the exact reason I used "current-gen". :)

    yes its a good card and will play anything current very well. It won't be able to play dx10 games, which will be a problem in the future.

    Guess i'll have fork out on a direct x 10 card soon :s

    so when do these DX10 cards hit the market? any ideas.

    There's already one series out, called the GeForce 8800 series by NVIDIA. ATi's X2800 series is coming in around 2 months.

    Doesn't really matter if you aren't running Vista. But at the Microsoft Launch Event I went to last month, I got the impression that there would be a DX10 for XP at some point in the future, either that or the Microsoft speaker was clueless on the subject.

    Always a possibility...

    The least expensive dx10 card on the market is the 8800gts 320mb. Its a very nice card, and costs ~$300.
