ASUS Extreme 7800 GT
- Powerful, great bundle
- Nothing of note
The ASUS 7800 GT is a solid performer with an impressive software bundle. Its retail price is reasonable for a card based on this NVIDIA chipset.
Price$ 799.00 (AUD)
The ASUS Extreme N7800 GT is quite similar to its more powerful sibling - the ASUS 7800 GTX TOP - with the most noticeable difference being the much smaller cooling fan. Under the bonnet is a core running at 400MHz, a memory clock of 1GHz, 256MB of GDDR3 memory, 20 pixel pipelines and seven vertex processors.
The differences between this card and the one based on the 7800 GTX are the clock and memory speeds (430MHz and 1200MHz, respectively) as well as the pixel pipelines and vertex processors (24 and eight, respectively). The N7800GT is well designed with good airflow from a 40mm fan blowing over thin aluminium leaves. It has the standard support for VIVO, SLI and two DVI ports.
It scored 6336 in 3DMark2005, and notched up 102.5fps when running Doom 3 at ultrahigh quality mode without antialiasing. Relative to the ASUS 7800 GTX TOP it is a solid performer, only 3fps shy in the ultrahigh quality Doom 3 test.
Its software bundle is impressive: ASUS driver utilities plus Project Snowblind, Medi@Show SE 2.0, ASUS DVD, Power Director 3DE, Xpand Rally and Joint Operations. A PCI Express power splitter and CD case is included also. The supplied software is not a clincher of course - performance should be your main consideration when buying a graphics card, but it may sway you to buy this card over another similarly priced card that doesn't come with such a rich bundle

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
