Default What should i get 6600GT or X1600pro

im not sure which is best plz help.

Pci-e, x1600pro 512mb slow RAM, 6600gt ddr3 RAM (128)...

Apparently 6600gt and x1600pro are simalar, but im not sure which one to get, I'm leaning towards the 6600gt because of it's good reputation...

6600gt costs a bit less so I might get it...any suggestions?

only review i found and the graphs were missing.. lol so i linked straight to the conclusion.

it seems to be pretty much the same as the 6600gt.

so whichever is cheaper i guess... see how much the 256mb one costs.. if its cheaper than the 6600gt then go for that.. if the 6600gt is cheaper then go for that. both are great low-mid end cards.

no the x1600 doesn't compare to the 7600..

the x1600xt is a good card and competes with, but usually is beaten by the 6800gs. i guess it beats the 7600gs, but not the 7600gt.

the x1600 series is priced well for us canadians, so it could be something to look at.. but if you have access to newegg you're better off getting something else.

again, if the x1600pro 256mb one is cheaper than the 6600gt i'd go for it. and unlike schulz i LIKE ati

i've jsut had better luck with nvidia altho if they keep up with those x1900 i'll probably go to ati but i read it someplace that the nvidia 7600 was the counter fopr ATI's x1600 series... wish i had the links but oh well maybe it wasn't tru.. well have to read about it.

the x1600 was probably for the 7600.. but it totally failed. it competes better with last generation's mid-range card, lol
