Yea exactly....the 8500GT is slightly faster than an 7300gt...i you have about 110 bucks extend your budget a bit and try to get either an X1900GT/X1950GT or a 7900GS. However if you can't go that far then the 7600GT and the X1650XT are both a good bit faster for pretty much the exact same price.

ooo. the only reason i thought the 8500gt was comparable to the 7600gs was because it said 16 pixil pipelines. but since someone cleared that for me, ill probably be saving for a x1950xt
