    "The 7600GT is a very overclockable card, even with just the default cooler and no hardware mods done. Core went from 560MHz to 660MHz, and Memory from 700MHz to 850MHz. That's an 18% overclock in core speed and 21% increase in Memory speed! The card brought us through 3D Mark 06 without any artifacts at that speed and gave a near 4,000 point score."

    That's right, I'm confusing specs. That's even worse though. QQ. I guess I should be happy for being getting a great deal but I can't help but feel jipped in terms of performance/money spent.

    If your playing your games above 1280x then your card is far far better, but im still using a 19" Hansol 920p and although it supports 1600x i rarly play my games above 1024x so this card is ideal for me, if i had an LCD that supported high Res then the 7600GT wouldnt really be an option and i would buy a 7800-7900GT.

    Kyle wait till the 7800GT's are fased out and make sure that the shop you bought your 7800GT from dont sell em anymore, then get a set of jump leads connect one end to a car battery then connect the other to the 7800GT and there you go you now have one blown 7800GT that can only be replaced with a 7900GT............You aint see me right?

    Hmmm...I dunno if I could do that and not feel like shmuk. That is a good idea though since the 7800 series is being fased out.

    Or I could wait until there are none left and some poor soul is lefting needed another for sli :D.

    I'm still on my lover XFX XXX GeForce 6800GS. But I feel that its getting old, because of the new 7900GTX, GT and 7600GT.

    My question is, is it worth upgrading from 6800GS to a 7600GT? Or should I save up some cash and buy 7900GT, or even 7800GT.

    I'm really concerned about the whole 128-bit thing, 128bit is kinda old, I just don't understand how 128bit card can get 6K in 3dMark 05..

    No, save up for 7900gt, you'll see a way bigger difference in terms of performance. 6800gs to 7600gt not worth it.

    /agree 6800gs to 7600gt is not much of an upgrade. Try and wait for DX10 cards.

    I read that review and don't understand why the 7600GT draws less power than the 7900GT but runs hotter? They are using the same fan/heatsink combination.

    Would the 7900GT be easier to cool than the 7600GT?

    Now there is another review here that shows the 7600GT running cooler than the 7900GT, and the 7600GT drawing less power:

    http://www.guru3d.com/article/Videocards/326/4/

    So which card would be easier to cool? I would get an aftermarket cooler for quietness regardless of either the 7600GT or 7900GT. I would like to run a Zalman VF700 at 5 volts, or perhaps the forthcoming VF900, as I don't see a better solution at this time.

    I wouldn't worry about it. I think just about all 7600GT's should probably be able to run around 600/1500-1600 just fine.

    Pre i would suggest to hold on to that system of yours for some time this year, wait for the CONROE to be marketed it slamps AMD Flagship processor (FX60 i think)... Going to AMD this time is not really a wise decission. Yes the REVIEW of CONROE vs FX60 affects my plans to upgrade. And the CONROE they used in the review is not even the EXTREME EDITION its only a MID-HIGH end PROCESSOR from INTEL and still it beats FX60 for about 15-20%...

    Im pretty sure the PRICE will drop when the CONROE is out in the MARKET... Also the other factor to consider is VISTA, it will come out Q3-Q4 this year, they say's that current system will not support VISTA im not sure how true it is but i dont want to gamble...

    About 7600GT i have to check my supplier this week for its price in PESO, im expecting it to be around 10K-11K (philippine currency)... Its not bad at all, unfortunately eventhough it is a good card, no one can assure that its DX10 compliant... So im resetting all my plans for upgrade now...

    The new 7 series has been made for Vista, infact they are the only cards out at the moment that support Vista 100% and seeing as Vista is ONLY DX10 and not backward compatible with DX9 then id say these cards are DX10 Compatible, but not DX10 cards if you get what i mean.
