Default Will this help me until the 8 series

I am looking at getting something a little better than what I have right now and I was wondering if I would see any difference if I got this card
MSI GeForce 7300 GS TurboCache / 256MB GDDR2 / Supporting 512MB with TurboCache / PCI Express / DVI / VGA / TV Out
right now I have a
Nvidia Geforce 6600 256MB w/DVI+TV out video
it is a pretty cheap card that is why I was wondering if I will would help me any until the 8 series comes out

The 7300GS is NOT worth the money. If anything, get a 7600xx, or stick with your 6600GT for the time being.

No, I hear those things don't run much better than say a 6200 :P So you would see at most the same performance you are already getting. If anything get a 7600gs if you want something cheap.

ok I was looking around and I found this are you sure that the 7300 isn't better than my 6600 this is compared to a 6800XT

GPU/VPU
NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS
RAMDAC Dual 400 MHz
Vertices per Second 431 Million Memory
Video Memory 256MB
Memory Type GDDR2
Core Clock 575 MHz Connections
Interface Type PCI Express
Connector(s) DVI HDT VVGA

GPU/VPU NVIDIA GeForce 6800 XT
RAMDAC Dual 400 MHz
Vertices per Second 300 Million Memory
Video Memory 256MB
Memory Type 256-bit GDDR3
Core Clock 350 MHz
Memory Clock 1000 MHz
Interface Type PCI Express
Connector(s) Dual DVI HDTV

now when I look at that I would say that the 7300 is the better one there so could you tell me how the 7300 isn't a good card thax
