Thats good to know. I was about to get a 6600GT. Should I go for the 7600GS or the GT? Also how much of a difference does a 128MB and a 256Mb 7600 card make?

Not too sure. I'm sure the 7600GS would be a better choice, just search for some benchmarks on Google, and it should tell you what you need to know.

GT is always the better performing card. the GS series was introduced with the 6800gs which turned out to be cheaper and a better overclocker. don't think that is true of the 7600gs although i haven't looked into it. the 7600gs should be better than the 6600gt.

the 7600GS is better, it has 12 pipes compared to 8 pipes for 6600GT

true the 7600gs is better but you can not just cite this as the reason, its completely one dimensional. clock speed is also a factor. it is to be noted that the 6600gt (from nVIDIA reference cards) is 500mhz and the 7600gs (from reference also) is 400mhz. this would almost be like comparing an AMD athlon 3200+ to a 3.8ghz p4 and saying the AMD is better for the 14 stage pipeline. just remember there is more than one factor.......yes the 7600gs is better

iam just saying that 7600GS has 12 pipline, and i didn't say that 7600GS better because it has more pipes.

i read many reviews that 7600GS is better than 6600GT, and 7600GS is as good as 6800 vanilla
