Default Which of these GPU is better

just wondering, my old comp has a NX6600 GT running 256mb, now i can run F.E.A.R on low medium and Battle Feild 2 about the same. Now a new comp im getting is gonna have a 7600GS/GT (not sure which one yet) running also at 256mb.

Well im sure that the 7600 is better is it going to give a noticable improvement graphics wise????

Yes, the 7600GT will be a very noticeable improvement over that 6600GT.

You should be able to play both F.E.A.R. and BF2 on high settings.

Agreed with above... it will be a most noticable difference... assuming both cards are PCI-e here is the basic setup of both cards...

yes try to get the 7600GT has GDDR3 and seems to have a bigger improvement over a 7600GS.

The 7600GS isn't so good. Infact, the 6600GT is better than it in a lot of ways...definately try to get the 7600GT, not the 7600GS.

I have 6600 (not gt) and I play FEAR on 1024x768 on medium setting.

What cpu and how much ram do you have? because as I know both FEAR and BF2 need a lot of ram and powerful cpu to run smoothly. Video card is not every thing.

I strongly disagree with you
The 7600GS is much better than 6600GT, because it has more pipes and more vertex shader. and 7600GS uses newer technology.

But I say get 7600GT if you want to see a big difference

the 7600GS will outperform the 6600 but not by a huge margin mainly as all the 7600GS's iv seen use DDR2 where as the 7600GT uses GDDR3 and has a significant improvement over the 6600 and 7600GS.

True the GT has better clocks the GS is just a "tamed" version but for a little more go with a 7800

go with a 7900 if you can the 7800s arent being made anymore so it will cost you way more then its worth to get one.
