are you sure it doesn't have 2 gpu's? it sure sounded like it but oh well. So the 7900gs is better than?

I would get an evga geforce 7900gs ot gt but best buy don't sell them. Bestbuy makes me very upset sometimes.

should i keep my connect3d x1600pro 256mb ddr or buy the pny geforce 7900gs?

Graphics card prices will come down within the next 3 months right?

If so i think i will just upgrade my pc case cause right now i have a crappy beige case thats about 5-7 years old.

it would be easier to decide if somebody made gift cards that work at any store.

dude a 7600gs will be no better than your x 1600, they're the same, basically.
yes the 7900gs will be better. and no, i have it, it does not have 2 gpus. but the one it has is a monster. and if you have a 6 series gs equivalent card (sic x 1600 or 7600) the 7900 series has some advantages that will be worth an upgrade.
do it!
unless u want to wait for 8800 (driver problems) or x1900 xtx (overpriced).
