Default 7800gt or 7600gt?


I was originally going to buy a 7600gt to hold me over in my conroe right till the G80's come out. Recently i found out i could get a 7800gt brand new for only $12 more which is very rare in Australia, what am i better of getting, i know it seems like a silly question, but the 7600gt would most likely run alot cooler and efficient, it also has blu ray and high def support. So what should i get?

blu ray and hi def? first time i've heard that.. and i'm pretty sure all the 7 series cards support HD.. my 6600gt supports hi def..

definitely get the 7800gt.

They're just high-resolution videos.

Nothing else.

There's no question about it.

Get it. The 7600GT is a great budget card....the 7800GT at one time was a top performance card and is still pretty **** good

7800GT may be older than the 7600GT, but it still performs much better.
