7300gt beats 7600gs, and also the x1600 in some benches.

I faced the same choice, i picked 7300gt. Look up some benchmarks and you will see the difference. If your over clocking the 7300gt also makes the gap much larger, increase performance +30-35% (no the GS does not overclock as well as the 7300gt).

Make sure you get a ddr3 version though, and the 512mb i have is marginally better then the 256, so dont bother with that.

i just tested stock settings, 49.75 FPS with every setting maxed out on CS:Source Video Stress Test.

From experience, thats 6fps better then my x1600pro 512.

Rofl, how are you so sure, you haven't even looked.

7300GT - $70.

7600GS - $100.

Since when the heck do we measure performance by price anyways? That would mean that the $680 FX-62 is better than the $309 E6600. Which its not.
