    Ok, so the 7600GT and other new 7 serries model are out. My question is are this model a DX10 compliant?

    EDIT:
    Ok, to provide a simple comparison i choose 3dMarks products... Heres the scores of the new 7 serries card.

    6K on 3dMark2005 is pretty much impressive for me, let say if im using an INTEL P42.8 HT maybe i get around 5K on 3dMark2005...

    DX10 is supposed to be supported by the GF8*** series and by Vista. these cards are just an, imo, fine tunement of the 7800's.

    7600GT is definitely one of the best bang for you buck cards since the 6600GT and TI4200. I ordered one.

    hmm anyone knows the specs?im planning an upgrade for a mate and if that card is just as good as the 6600GT was for its time then it sounds like a bargain

    Just check NEWEGG for prices, and i found LEADTEK 7600GT just for 189USD (9828.00 pesos here in our currency) I got my 6600GT for 8,900.00 pesos... So yes this is the next bung for the buck card... Unfortunately no AGP version... But im not that dissapointed because im planning to change to PCI-E and AMD anyway.

    I just cant decide if i do it this year or ill wait for next year... But difinitely this 7600GT is the best bung for the buck this time.

    What's the point of upgrading from a 6600GT to a 7600GT. It looks like a 6800GS with higher speeds and a few new features. That's not really an upgrade. More like a sidegrade with a few new toys. Just go for the 7900GT. For 100 bucks more, you go from 12 to 24 pipes. The thing is a 7800GTX(maybe faster)for 200 bucks cheaper.

    You're going from a 6800 to a that?

    yeah, i can't wait till the 7600gt's are out, but too bad its not for AGP tho, but oh well at least it will help lower the price of the current videocards on market....

    hmm... nice reason, but 7600GT double the performance of a 6600GT... Im not a hardcore gamer and i played almost all of my games at 1024x768 res so 7600GT can handle any game in that res... But if the price is good for 7900GT or 7800GTX then why not...

    Price matters for me...

    Going from a 6600GT to 7600GT is quite an improvement.

    It seems only slightly faster that the 6800GS for the same price. I'm not saying that it's not a good value, but I just don't understand people upgrading from 6800 series cards or cards around there.

    well you give your comment about sidegrade to me and i have a 6600GT... I its only become sidegrade if you already have 6800GS and UP but diffinitely its un UPGRADE from 6800 vanilla down... and remember those people who has 6800 vanilla and below prefers the best bung for the buck card...

    Well I'm upgrading to one because my 6800 only has 128mb of slow ram which limits my performance in games like BF2, FEAR, COD 2, and others. And the fact that I play all my games at 1024x768 with little aa/af I really don't need a high-end card. Plus I'll be selling my 6800 on ebay for around $100 bucks so in the end I'm only paying $100 for a pretty good performance increase and newer, more efficient architecture.

    It's the high end (6800) 6-series killer, that's all that can be said. Poor 6-series.

    For the price, i would say DIFINITELY YES but for the meantime i did not see any direct performance comparison between 7600GT and 6800GT or ULTRA...

    I guess it's a pretty good deal. I just think it's gay that they are releasing these new cards right before all of us are going to have to upgrade AGAIN for dx10 and vista.

    thats the other reason why im holding up with my current system... but if someone can assure me with this two conditions, that theres no big difference between DX10 and DX9, and games manufacturer still be making games on DX9 based until 2008... surely im going to change my system for about 3-4 months from now...
