Default Which graphics card?

I current choice is a 7600gs for $240 NZ (our currency is doesnt equal much)

But i have found i few other choices...

X800gt, how does this compare against the 7600gs?


Ge-Cube X1600PRO PCIE DDR2 256MB?

Does it have much of a difference of the brand? in like performance?

currently im running an intergrated 6100 play quake 4 ok on mid settings but as soon as online came it was shocking!

Ok strongly considering this:

This X800gt has been flashed with x850xtpe Bios and is 20-25% faster than a normal x800gt.

ATi Radeon X800GT GPU (R480/X850 Based Chip)
Core Clock: 520mhz
256MB 256-bit GDDR3
Memory Clock: 1000mhz (500x2)
Pipelines: 8
Bus: 16x lane PCI Express

Gets over 4800 marks in 3dmark05 using stock speeds, and would easily get over 5000 with overclock. normal x800gt only gets 3900 marks. Card is 5 months old and originally purchased for $340. Runs Most new games on max settings well.

I put in his full comment to see if his "flashed bios" is real..

Thanks all it comes in $20 less than the 7600gs
