XFX GeForce 7800 GTX Graphics Card - XFX GeForce 7800 GTX

As usual, XFX has shipped the card in a large X shaped box, which does look pretty cool. In the box you’ll find the card itself, two DVI to D-SUB converters, two S-Video cables, a ViVo cable with S-Video in, S-Video out, and component video out. There’s also a twin Molex to six-pin PCI Express power converter, a driver disc, manual and a free T-Shirt.


Finally there’s a games bundle thrown in, and although X2: The Threat and Moto GP 2 are unlikely to get your pulse racing. Far Cry still looks as sweet as it did on the day it launched over a year ago.


So, how much are you going to have to pay for all this power? Well, as always, nothing this good ever comes cheap, and you’re going to have to dig pretty deep to buy one of these cards, but if you have SLi aspirations you’re going to have to be seriously flush. A single XFX GeForce 7800 GTX will set you back £422.87, so if you want SLi you’ll be looking at over £800 for graphics cards alone.


But despite the high price, I can’t help but love these cards. What I have in front of me is the current pinnacle of graphics technology – these cards will, quite simply, laugh at even the most demanding of 3D games. I guess I better start saving my pennies.


Verdict


This is the fastest graphics card ever to grace the TrustedReviews lab. The GeForce 7800 GTX is a totally awesome chipset, and the slightly overclocked XFX retail board pushed the envelope even further. If you’ve got a lot of money, buy one of these cards. If you’ve got even more money buy two – you won’t regret it.
