Default which is better?

evga geforce 7600gt or the evga geforce 8600 Gt

7600gt

Buy the EVGA e-GeForce 7600 GT Graphics Card (256P2N553DX) and other Computer Video Cards and Adapters at circuitcity.com

8600gt

Buy the eVGA e-GeForce 8600 GT 256MB PCI-e Card (256P2N751DX) and other Computer Video Cards and Adapters at circuitcity.com

Just wondering cause I own the 7600gt and there both the same price.

Gigabyte has higher clock than the eVGA by default, and Gigabyte is also fanless

XFX 8600GT has even faster clock than Gigabyte but it is more expensive
Newegg.com - XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

If you can spend a little more then get 8600GTS
Newegg.com - MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E HD OC GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail

By the way, why do think that Gigabyte sucks ?

My parents once bought a Gigabyte motherboard and it fried within 1-2 months. Oh yeah and MSI is a good brand too.

I have 2 msi motherboards and there great so I would buy an Msi graphics card anyday. Just not Ati.

I think EVGA, because of their warranty, and step-up program.

See I like seeing Evga fans. I am an EVGA fan and I own 1 xfx, 1 ati, and 1 EVGA card but now I am sticking with EVGA. Geforce is better than ATI.

7900GS is just slightly more powerful but 8600 is DX10 and will be future proof and better when DX10 games comes out.
