Depending on your budget, try getting the 7600GT instead. More expensive, but it performs better! I use a Gainward card, haven't had problems yet, and the build-quality is realy good, drivers are easy to install and up to date on the disk, and you usualy get some extra software included as well.

How long have u been using that card? No offence but it wont be any problems accuring if just a couple of weeks though...

How is the quality of Gainward compared to those kind of Leadtek and MSI?

Thank You...

I've had it for 2 months now. Well, I'm from the UK, and over here the difference in price is only 15GBP, or $25.

Gainward's really not that unknown, and I've never heard of anyone having problems. They use great coolers, and if I had to choose(honestly), I would get the Gainward, then MSI, and last the Leadtek. But that's just my opinion, and only for the 7600GS. The one from Leadtek uses a passive cooling heatsink, which I personally don't trust. But I guess its up to you, and your budget, in the end. I belive the one from Leadtek is really cheap, so go for that one to save money!

Here in Oz the diff between Gainward 7600gs and Gainward 7600gt is around AU$100 (40GBP). Too much in my opinion..

The diff between 7600gs of Gainward and Leadtek is only AU$30 (12GBP). Not that much diff in price....
And I'm willing to pay that much difference for the performance that Gainward offer but I'm wondering for their reliability and durability and stability too as here in OZ we hardly saw one.

mine was three year, although I'm not certain on specific models. You'll have to check at:

www.gainward.net I think that's their site.

Okey... Finally i decided on placing an order for the Gainward 7600GS ... Hopefully I'll be getting it this friday....

However, do you think my current PSU (420W oure power) would be enough to handle this card?
<sorry, i really got no idea on this>

Thanx...

I dont see any reason why it wouldn't work, 420W should be enough
