PNY Verto GeForce 7900 GTX Limited Edition (PCI-E review: PNY Verto GeForce 7900 GTX Limited Edition (PCI-E

The card features a pair of DVI outputs, as well as a seven-pin connector that accommodates both an S-Video cable for connecting analog televisions and an external component-output dongle for use with HDTVs. (Of course, many HDTV displays accept DVI inputs as well). Both DVI connectors support dual-link DVI, allowing you to drive two large flat-panel monitors at resolutions up to 2,560x1,600. Analog-only monitors are supported using included DVI-to-VGA adapters. And the included tool kit, packed with small screwdrivers, and the 28X speed flash drive are useful additions--the former especially for installation and general day-to-day PC maintenance.

PNY's warranty covers the card for just one year, but it extends to three years when you register the 7900 GTX on the company's Web site. Though the warranty doesn't compare to the lifetime warranties some competitors offer on their GeForce cards, chances are that buyers of high-end cards such as the 7900 GTX won't wait three years before their next upgrade anyway. The PNY support site, however, is disappointing. It includes a searchable FAQ, links to Nvidia's driver site, and a series of mostly outdated technical PDF files. Not only does it lack a user forum, there's no support form, nor even a support e-mail address listed. At least PNY offers a toll-free telephone support number, although it's buried in the documentation.
