So can EVGA's 7800GTX KO knock out the competition? While it does boast higher GPU and memory clock speeds than Nvidia's reference design, at around $480 it is a bit more expansive than some other 7800GTX cards. Even so, quality isn't always cheap.
"The reference 7800GTX 256Mb from nVidia comes with 430Mhz GPU and 1.2Ghz memory clock. EVGA´s 7800GTX KO version has 490Mhz GPU and 1.3Ghz memory clocks; nVidia´s 7800GTX 512Mb does better with 550mhz GPU and 1.7ghz memory, the KO version of EVGA sits in the middle GPU clock wise"
