FEATURES- E-GeForce 7800 GT CO PCI Express GeForce 7800 GT 256MB DDR Video Card with Copper Heatsink. Traditionally, PC gamers have had to choose between the fastest frame rates and the best image quality in order to maintain playable performance on advanced PC games. That was then. This is now... The NVIDIA GeForce 7800 graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tear through the latest games. The GeForce 7800 GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality--so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance. * PCI Express Support PCI Express is a Intel bus architecture that doubles the bandwidth of the AGP 8X bus, delivering over 4 GB per second in both upstream and downstream data transfers. * NVIDIA SLI Technology Patented hardware and software technology allows two GPUs to run in parallel to scale performance. Scales performance on over 60 top PC games and applications. * Mind-Blowing Performance Built to deliver mind-blowing graphics performance, the GeForce 7800 GPUs feature a next-generation superscalar architecture and an all new NVIDIA CineFX 4.0 engine. The CineFX 4.0 engine includes a redesigned vertex shader unit that shortens the time required to set up complex geometry processing. In addition, a new pixel shader unit delivers up to 2x the floating point shading power of previous generation products, while an advanced texture unit incorporates new hardware algorithms to speed filtering and blending operations. All of these features combine to deliver advanced visual effects at unimaginable speeds. The GeForce 7800 GPUs are designed to reach even higher levels of performance through NVIDIA SLI technology. With NVIDIA SLI, you can combine two GeForce 7800 GPUs in a single system to scale performance by up to 2x. Through an intelligent combination of software and hardware, NVIDIA SLI is able to offer this unbelievable performance on over 60 of the top PC titles. If you have ever dreamed of running id Softwares DOOM 3 at 90 frames per second, NVIDIA SLI can make your dream a reality. The GeForce 7800 GPUs are backed by the NVIDIA ForceWare Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)--the industrys most stable software platform. The ForceWare UDA delivers rock-solid reliability and compatibility with the widest range of games and applications so you can enjoy the ultimate "install-and-play" experience. * Realistic Gaming Experiences Powered by breakthrough visual effects technology, the GeForce 7800 GPUs blur the line between fictional game worlds and reality. Featuring the advanced NVIDIA Intellisample 4.0 technology, the GeForce 7800 GPUs deliver exceptional visual quality through new antialiasing modes and advanced anisotropic filtering. Some of the new modes and enhancements include: - Transparent supersampling and multisampling which minimize the undesirable visible aliasing that occurs in highly detailed textures. The improvement in 3D image quality can be most visible when viewing outdoor scenes and objects such as vegetation and chain link fences in games. - Increased subsample coverage and a new texture core which accelerate 64-bit floating point texture filtering and blending to deliver full- speed, state-of-the art high dynamic-range (HDR) lighting effects. This technique, used in professional film rendering by companies such as Industrial Light & Magic, delivers complex, ultra-realistic lighting effects to hot new games. - Gamma-adjusted rotated-grid antialiasing which removes jagged edges from 3D images while maintaining the highest level of color reproduction on your monitor. In addition, the GeForce 7800 GPUs are built on NVIDIAs proven Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 architecture, so you can play all the latest DirectX 9.0-based games while experiencing the most realistic Shader Model 3.0 effects possible. * Home-Theater Quality Video Watching TV, DVDs, and high-definition video on the PC is quickly becoming commonplace amongst PC users. In addition to providing the performance and advanced features for an amazing gaming experience, the GeForce 7800 GPUs also deliver a home-theater quality video experience to the PC with NVIDIA PureVideo technology. The combination of a hardware video processor and video decode software, NVIDIA PureVideo technology delivers stunning video to any display. NVIDIA PureVideo supercharges your PC experience with high-definition video and crystal-clear picture quality. Featuring enhanced HDTV processing and the industrys most advanced video algorithms, PureVideo delivers 50% efficiency improvement and support for the latest high- definition video standard--WMV9 1080p. Integrated HDTV-output allows you to connect your PC to a high definition TV for direct-to-TV playback, turning your PC into a high-end home theater system. * Equip Yourself with Full-Throttle Graphics Performance Raising the bar for performance, visual effects, image quality, and video functionality, the GeForce 7800 GPUs power an extreme PC experience. No longer do you have to choose between blazing frame rates and the highest image quality. By equipping your rig with a GeForce 7800 GPU, you can experience the power of full-throttle graphics performance.

I didn't actually purchase this combo. I bought the same two items individually. For $365, this combo is a great price. Because I use this setup for my HTPC, I had to spin down the chipset fan and get a Artic Cooling nV Silencer quiet down the 7800GT. Those are the only two main problems I have had with this motherboard and video card. Even though I have three HDs (mixture of Seagate and Maxtor), they are very quiet and are inaudible when sitting several feet away on my couch. The loudest things in the PC were the chipset fan and video card fan.
I've bought this combo a month ago when it was on sale and I'm still very proud of my purchase! No problems at all with configuration and installation. Got OCZ memory and an Thermalright XP-120 and everything fits.
not to sure biout the quality of this thing ... but for the price you can't beat it ... i'll prolly upgrade it in the near future but so far i'm pleased with it's performance ... actally i'll prolly buy this package again so i can go sli .... so if anyone needs a mobo .... lemme know ....lol ....jk
Very happy with this combo so far. Saved a lot of money on my new system with this. 7800GT plays basically anything on 1024 or 1280 on max detail and AA. Overclocked my video card to get 8000 points on 3d mark 05 with just stock cooling.
Being my first build EVER as I am only 14, This motherboard was extremely easy to work with.THe only problem I had in the beginning we're the DIMM slots which enable dual channel. Manual labelled dual channel configuration to be slot 1&2, 2&4, in fact it is actually 1 &3, 2&4. Overclocking potential on this baby was great. I had an AMD64 3200+ at 2000mHz, OC'ed it to 2610 STOCK volts!Never had a problem so far except the drivers are a bit of a nuisance. Overall great board,great card, great overclocking potential,and a great buy
What can I say! This is an awesome package for those looking for big bang for their buck. The EVGA NF4 mobo is stable and a good performer. The EVGA 7800GT is blazing fast and beats 3dmark05 benchmarks by Asus, Microstar, EVGA and BFG. It has a lot of overclocking potential too. Only downside was the manual really sucked! Other then that, a solid product :D
