7600GT is cheaper and it is much better than X1650pro

Will it still out perform the Radeon though considering the Radeon is 512MB w/ 12 piplines and the geforce is only a 256mb w/ 12 pipelines??

Just wondering what your looking at to say this so that maybe i can get a better understanding of Video cards and what to look for.

7600GT is much better than X1650pro, even if it has less memory. I'm sure everyone here knows that.

Actually, X1650pro doesn't have real 12 pipelines. It has 4 pipelines but it can do 3 shader processors per pipe (same as X1900)

What do you guys think of the Ultra PSU's. To be a little more exact I'm looking at the 500W v-series.

Also will i need the PCIE power connector for the 7600GT Video Card?
