Leadtek WinFast PX7800GTX (256MB)
As always, Nvidia lets other companies bring its 3D chips to retail. The software bundle, inputs and outputs, and various add-ons in the box may vary between companies, but 3D cards using the GeForce 7800 GTX graphics chip will all deliver breakneck 3D gaming performance. You might keep an eye out for cards that ship overclocked, as they have been tweaked for even faster performance than cards running at the factory-standard settings (usually at an added cost). You should expect to see GeForce 7800 GTX cards sell for around $600. That's pricey, but for the cost, you get the best-looking 3D gaming any single graphics card can currently provide.
