    Yep, congrats! The 7900GTX card is a stonker of a gfx card. Be very wary if you try overclocking it though as the one or more of the voltage regulator chips on the card itself are prone to overheating and feeding weird voltages to the core/memory whereupon you start to have problems like flickering desktop/3d artifacts/etc. There's threads about it in various places on the net if you want to read up on it.

    Welcome to the forums btw :thumb:

    That's pretty tight. I would love to win a 7900gtx. Now just don't do anything stupid with it like the infamous "6800 love juice".

    Someone got a bit over-excited and quite literally spuzzed over their new 6800.
