...7600GT...


Chalk up one more vote for the 7600GT. That's the card I was considering when it was $160, but I decided to wait, and now I've got an X1950 Pro. But for $100, go with the 7600GT.

The nice thing with the 7600 GS is that you can get it with fanless coolers (quiet!)

Yeah, that's what I have, except it was getting incredibly hot (poor case ventilation with a P4 - a bit of a no-no that I put another fan in my case just blowing across the card).

You might actually want to hold off on getting a new card for the next month or two. Engadget just had some news about a new Geforce 8300 (and 8600). They would have DirectX 10 support. Even if those are too expensive, it will cause prices to drop a bit more. (Although $100 for a 7600 is still a good deal, I think).

I doubt the price drop, if any, will be really significant (at least not in the $100 price range). Besides, I've already ordered it... but any more thoughts could help other people. Thanks for your replies anyway. -Love & Peace!
