Meh, its definitely a lot better, and will let you play those games pretty well, but the 7600GS is starting to go the way of the 6600GT now.

But yeah, its definitely an improvement.

According to that review, it's a little slow. You might want to check to see if Gigabyte has put out a BIOS update for it. if they have, it might help it out a bit.

Other than that, it looks like a good board.
