You saw the benchmarks. The GeForce 7600 GT easily outperformed the GeForce 6800 GS in all our tests. Whether it was a shader model 3.0 test or not, OpenGL vs Direct3D, AA or no AA, even in HDR testing the GeForce 7600 GT came out ahead of the GeForce 6800 GS. The most amazing thing about it is that the GeForce 7600 GT manages to pull it off with considerably less memory bandwidth (thanks to its 128-bit memory interface) and only 12 pipelines.

the vid card is letting your system down, invest a little extra and get a 7800gt maybe

you didn't say it in this thread. i'm supposed to follow your other threads too? anyways.. i hardly doubt an overclocked 6800gs will make up so much ground on an overclocked 7600gt.

the 6800 dominates the 7600 when overclocking. ask anyone else who knows anything about either of these cards
