Definitely get the 7600GT, the 7300 series are no good.

Actuallly 2 7300's SLI sometimes beat one 7600GT, but it all depends on upgradability, price, games you play, what setting, specs of your computer, etc.

I would go with the 7600GT

Would the Radeon X850XT be a better choice? Because I saw it cheaper then the 7600GT.

dude don't look into it trust me cause i got a crappy geforce 6800 xtreme and upgraded to an evga geforce 7600gt which i should've just bought that card in the first place.

The 7600gt is definately the way to go man.

Is it because of the higher memory bus type, that the X850XT performs better?

go with the 7600gt. why buy an ati card when you have a sli mobo. just buy the 7600 now and then get one in a month or two. that would be the better choice.
