Coming from your card, in the sub-$200 price range, there are 3 cards you shoudl consider: the X850 XT, 7600 GT, and X1800 GTO
The X850 XT will be the cheapest and might offer slighty better framerates than the other two. However, it is older technology and does not support Shader Model 3.0/ Still, a very good buy
The 7600 GT is bery fast and offers SM 3.0 technology. It is also very well priced.
The X1800 GTO is slightly more expensive and performs similarly to the 7600 GT, but it is a monster overclocker. If you plan to overclock, the X1800 GTO is unleashed and does exceptionally better than an overclocked 7600 GT or X850 XT.
So there you go. All 3 are great cards, just pick the one right for you. Don't bother with a 7600 GS, X1600 XT, or really any other cards in the price range, they aren't as good.
well from my opinion i would go wiht the X1800Gto because even if you dont overclock its still a great card and it has Shader Model 3.0 and in the future when games because more demanding for graphics that card will last your longer than the 850 also the 7600 is great to but i feel as if its more of a mid-upper range card
good luck with your search
Hey thanks. Im really leaning to the 7600gt.
Can you tell me why the 6800gt has 16 pipes while the 7600gt only has 12?
When 6800GT was released, it was a high-end card. When 7600GT (recently) has been released, it was a mid-range card, but they were able to crank out high clock speeds on the 7600GT. 7600GT is newer technology also. There are few factors on the pipeline issue.
well if you say so but lets look at it
Gf Mx 440 does suck and i will agree with you 100% but it passes all requirements
it has 128ram and it has Dx7 so what more do i need ( i guess nothing) i also play COD2 i mean for such a SH@%Y card im amazed
