    So I was thinking about getting a new graphic-card and wished for one for Christmas. Naturally I assumed that the "9400 GT" would pwn "7900 GS" but doing some research seems to imply that that isn't as obvoius as I thought it was. When I got the 7900 GS like 3 and a helf years ago that was top-stuff, very expensive card, but I figured a relatively cheap one, like 9400 GT would still out-perform it hands down. Im just wondering if thats the case, or have I made a bad wish xD

    Is a 3 year old Ferarri not better than a new Toyota? Different levels.

    the 7900GS will outperform the 9400GT by a noticable margin.
    you'll need tt get a 9600 or 8800GT to beat it

    I got a XTX Radeon HD 4770 instead, double the price of 9400 GT, but it's working good :D

    He was talking in context.

    Anyway, the price will probably tell the difference. a 7900GS being over 600 dollars back in the day on launch compared to a 9400 released at like 100 dollars on launch makes me think that the 7900 has more 'punch'
