Introduction

I know, I know, you're wondering why in the world am I doing a review on a measly 7900GS. Well, for those of you that have already shelled out the cash for a Core 2 Duo and a pair of 8800s, you probably should stop here. This review is more for the people like me that are still plodding along with a Socket 939 or later model P4 or Pentium D, and happen to have a few bucks to upgrade that 6600, 6800, or 7600 video card for a little extra gaming power. I'm expecting a significant increase in graphics power from the 7600GT I will be replacing.

The 7900 series was a very short lived series of graphics card, released during the relatively short time between the 7800 series and the 7950. I really don't know how long it was, but it seemed like only a few weeks. This coming from someone that couldn't afford either at the time and really didn't pay that much attention.



Leadtek is one of those companies that many people tend to overlook as just another generic video card company. Actually, they have been around since 1986, a very long time in the computer world. They have a full line of GeForce graphics cards and also manufacture audio/visual telephones, GPS equipment, video surveillance equipment and TV Tuner cards. Anyway, the 7900GS comes packaged in the attractive box seen above.



Here is the Leadtek WinFast 7900GS. This is the first PCI-E card that uses a PCI-E power connector that I have owned. The rear of the card is just as boring as pretty much every other PCI-E, AGP or PCI card. It's a shame since that's all you see once the card is installed.
