Get the 7950GT...I think 7600GT in SLI is a little better but I don't know, I would just get the 7950GT. Heres the comparison:

Just click multi-GPU on the 7600GT to show specs for SLI.

The 7950GT will be WAY better than the 2 7600gt.... in sli.. and by itself... i hear alot about the 7600GT being better than the 79**'s, who ever started that is crazy... 79** series all the way if u want performance and amazing game detail...

this link is not comparing ur card ... its 1- 7900GT vs 2-7600GT's in Oblivion...

OMG............YOU could run ten 7600GT's and they would suck compared to one 7950gt. Sheesh. My 7900gt single (current system) runs 3dmark05 at 9780!!! Two 7600GT's in SLI on my other puter gets 3630 on 3DMark05 with all other things being equal. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A 7600GT SLI OR NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
