Our friends at Tech Report have posted a review that looks at three different 7800 GTX cards from BFG, MSI and XFX. Turns out the winning card has NOTHING to do with graphics!
The first thing that should be said in any roundup of GeForce 7800 GTX video cards is that these cards are all essentially the same thing. NVIDIA doesn't just design the GPU; they create a reference design for the whole card, memory and all.

Beyond 3D has posted a review of the BFG 7800 GTX card that comes default overclocked.
The BFG Tech GeForce 7800 GTX OC is clearly a great 7800 GTX solution, offering more speed than the default configuration and a lifetime warranty as well. If you are faced with the choice between a board at the reference clocks verses the BFG board and they are still at similar prices then it appears to be a no-brainer which option to go for!

Does this quote from a GlobeInvestor article point to another delay in the release of ATI's next generation GPU?
'This range has been adjusted down from the preliminary guidance announced on June 6, 2005, due to a more conservative expectation on the ramp of new products in the fourth quarter,' ATI said. The company said on a conference call that its new graphics chip, the R520, is delayed.

It seems almost crazy to hear, but it just might happen. After news about the cancelled 6800U dual chip card hit the streets (as we expected) the rumors are starting about Asus' next move.
Instead, the company is looking forward to utilize two GeForce 7800-series chips on a single graphics card targeted for hardcore enthusiasts. The cancellation of the project is suggested to be the launch of the new-generation GeForce 7800 GTX graphics processing units.

I missed this one yesterday, but our friends at Tech Report have posted a review of the X800 XT All-in-Wonder card that offers a healthy does of gaming performance along with great video input and output capability.
ATI used digital tuners back in the days of the Radeon 8500DV, but switched to analog tuners from Philips for more recent All-in-Wonders. For the AIW X800 XT, ATI has returned to silicon-based digital tuners, which supposedly offer higher quality and quicker tuning.
