SM 4.0 is a DirectX 10 feature.....so all games that run in DX10 will support shader mark 4.0

ATI Radeon X1650 Pro vs. Nvidia GeForce 7600GS - TechSpot
According to these benchmarks, 7600GS beats X1650pro

I'm here talking about X1650pro, not the standard X1650

7600GS would completely destroy standard X1650
