What is your price range? Budget go with a 7600GT. If you have the money go with a 7900GT(X).

i know it is the same thing. What I mean is that I haven't chose the video card beacuse I'm not sure what GPU 7600GT or 7900GT

Thanks Shawn for your response

I think I'm going with the 7,600GT( because of my budget) but not sure if the RAM on the video cards makes much diference.
