Default Geforce 7xxx vs Geforce 8500GT 256mb

hey, i was just wondering how does the evga 8500GT 256mb compare with the 7 series. the specs on the evga 8500GT 256mb looks comparable up to the 7600gs to the 7900gs. what do you guys think?

also note that the 8500gt 256mb is only 89.95$ canadian compared to the 7600GS which is 140$ and the 7900GS 200$

No. The 8500gt has 16 shader processors, not pipelines. Both the 7600gs and 7900gs are faster
Edit: I'm not sure about the 8500gt being slower or faster than the 7600gs, but I don't think the 8500gt would be as fast as the 7900gs even if you quad sli them

The 8500GT, flat out sucks if you're planning on gaming with it. I would pick the 7900GS, out of all those cards, if you have the money.

an x1950xt, or a 8600gt, a gts doesnt even show more than 10 fps in all cases.

im kind of low on money, thats why i need something below 115$ canadian. my 7300GT crapped on me.

you guys won't believe this but the fan completely broke. all the blades came flying out and there was only like 2 blades left on the fan after i shutdown my pc. AND when i took out the card, i found 2 broken pins.
