well since they're the same card, benchmarks will show that they're exactly the same.. unless they're clocked differently.. so check the clock speeds.. if eVGA is faster, then its better! (and hence xfx is worse). if you want to prove to your dad that xfx is generally a worse build than the eVGA, then search for some xfx horror stories... every brand has them, but you only want the xfx ones.. hehe.. gl

If not i will be getting that...

I used the evga 7600 GT CO (580/1500) for awhile. It does not require it's own power dongle. It was stable with a 8% core OC, and played games beautifully.

3Dmark06: SM2 = 1482; HDR/SM3 = 1362 (GPU @ 623/1666)

F.E.A.R. at Med/High settings, max res = 42FPS

The scores above were with the CPU in my sig.

Great card, in my opinion you can't go wrong.

the 7600gt will handle those games no problem. (depending on resolution/detail you play them at..)
