8600GTS is slightly faster than stock 7900GS

So when comparing that card to the 7900GS KO from EVGA, I notice it beats that card in most places, but I noticed that the memory interface for the 7900 is 256, while it is 128. Also how many stream processors does the 8600gts have?

7600GT has 128bit memory interface, yet it beats 6800GT which has 256bit memory interface. Memory interface is not everything

8600GTS has 32 stream processors.

Well tey way I look at it. If i buy that 8600GTS, I would not have to upgrade my PSU right away. This would save me 130 dollars. Yet I also want this card to last, and be able to play games like crysis. IF i buy the 7900gs KO, it saves me 40 ollars for the video card, but I have to buy that seasonic for 130. I will evuentlly buy the Seasonic, but I need to decide which one do I want. If I buy the Seasonic, I would prolly wait two months before buying a new video card.

Yes I agree with you on this

Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N624-AR GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 KO Video Card - Retail

7900GS KO is about %40-50 cheaper, but it doesn't perform 40%-50% slower than 8600GTS

I never knew that 7900GS was cheap like that
