Default WorldIndustries' New GPU will be...

Hey,
I'm in the process of upgrading my PC again this summer...

So far, I've purchased 1GB of DDR600 off Gaara, which should def help my BF2 playing...

Next is my shoddy 9600XT card... It's definately out of date, even for my CPU's standards...

Now, my two main choices are:
a) NVidia 7600GS
b) Ati X800XT

Both are around the $140 CDN price range, in the AGP version. Apparently, the 7600GS has better technology, but the X800XT is a lot faster. Either way, I just want something that can play newer games decent, ESPECIALLY BF2.

Any help? Also, If you've got an AGP card for sale, and think I'm interested, drop me a line

X800XT should be better

Stock the X800XT is better however after overclocking they are very similar...I would just pick whichever is cheaper.

Why bother with overclocking when you got your nicer chip right there
