    Any side-by-side sreenies to confirm this?

    I've heard a lot of people saying that the current 1900 series has 'way better quality', but none of the reviews seem to show this. :confused:

    Either way - enjoy the new card you jammy get! :p

    I think my x1800xt has a lot better picture quality than 7800gtx 256mb. I friend of me got the 7800gtx, and while benching 3dmark 05 at standard settings, it's clearly a lot better image quality with my x1800xt. But I haven't tested both cards with the same screen though...

    Agreed, I really can't see the justification in upgrading if you already own a 1800xt/gtx at the moment, I just don't feel that the increase in performance is enougth to warrant the amount of money being outlaid, if your running above 1280x1024 then maybie but otherwise I would wait until next gen, even then tho we are so cpu limited these days I wondering what type of performance increase we gonna get when we wack a g80 in our systems, I just hope Amd/Intel come out with some blinding cpu's by then, What happen'd to the physix card, is that even still comiing out ?.

    Yeh i think BFG has one and is going to be out pretty soon.

    I really dont believe this ATi has better quality than Nvidia stuff. Comparying my 7800GT to my friends x1800XT and a x800XT PE on the same monitor i cant tell the slightest difference at all and niether can my friends!

    I especially see a lot of difference in canyon flight during 3dmark 05. The water and all seems a lot better. I had a 6600gt earlier, and I can see great improvements. And as said earlier, I think it's a lot better than 7800gtx, but I haven't checked both on the same screen...

    Have you checked your ati biased posts recently?

    As already requested in this thread, we need proof of ati's better IQ.

    rofl i like it


    bit of a waste of money imo that upgrade you must be loaded or carnt stand the fact that other ppl have better things

    either way i know what i would of done with the cash and it involves alot of jd, women and a dance floor,... you guessed it me ko'ed on the dancefloor with some bird kicking me in the nuts and my jd spilt all down my top :p
