OH! I had forgotten about the digital vibrance. That is a valid point.

Yeh and the artifacting in the last batch of cards kinda forced me to get the 1900, since it was either going to be the high end ati or nvidia. I did however pay 500 dollars for it, though I can't complain too much, this thing CAN'T be slowed down, by any game I throw at it, everything as high as it goes.

Well that sucks. Why does the 7900GT series get such great reviews if there's that problem?

I don't know. Maybe they review them after only a day testing. My card didn't mess up till day 3 and somewhere on the net I hear this is "only" a problem with 2% of the cards. But you know how accurate that can be. That could be like M$ saying only 2% of their 360s brake down but everyone and his cousin have returned theirs for a replacement.

Its not a huge problem. I mean I only know 1 friend out of around 13 who own the 7900GT that had to send it off to get it fixed after a few weeks.

Are there any benchmarks comparing the different brands of 7900GT's? There are so many, + some are factory OCed.
