also, the memory interace on the 7600gt is 128 bit while the 6800gs is 256 bit. they bit are identical in most oter things. so i just want to know, is the 7600gt are better card?

I would go with the 6800GS and overclock it to 7600GT speeds just because the 256bit mem :\, but if you arent into overclocking then get the 7600GT

you could overclock the 7600gt to higher speeds to, so i say get the 7600gt, also it has all the features of the new 7 series cards.
