Good prices. I'm not a PNY fan, but of the two I'd buy the 7600GT.

The 7600GT is faster but I trust Sapphire more

I would get the 7600GT. Here's a comparison of the 7600GT and X1600XT. The 7600GT is actually pitted against the X1800GTO & the X1800XL, the X1600XT does not appear in all the benchmarks.

Word of warning about PNY.

DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR SALES RECEIPT. EVER!!!

PNY will require your sales receipt before offering you tech support, even though you mail in your product registration card.

They simply suck as a company.

Spend the extra cash (only $30 more after you factor in rebates) and get higher clock speeds, better cooling, a much better warranty and a the Step-Up program (you could use the Step-Up program to get your full purchase price back so you can upgrade it to a 7900GT if you come up with even more cash in the next 90 days).

Don't put yourself under this sort of pressure. I'm sure you don't really need a new card tonight - they'll still be there tomorrow.

Yeah I got enough nagative replies about pny already that I want nothing to do with them. I was already looking at the EVGA. I have a EVGA 6800 now. I DID get my rebate from my 6800. They also have lifetime warranty. Im a little pissed I didnt buy it last night. Last night the EVGA was only $149 after rebate, now it's back to $169. :evil: 
Still taking other suggestions though. :lol:

Thanks guys, I purchased these:
MSI K9N-Neo nforce550 $80
Sempron64 3600+ AM2 $120
OCZ Platinum 2x512 DDR2-800 $104
EVGA 7600GT 256 Pci-e $149 after rebate

I think I'll be very happy considering Im still running my P4 2.4 400fsb and an agp 6800. I never would have guessed in a million years Id be upgrading my 2.4ghz two years later with a 2.0!! 8O

the 7600Gt def, but i agree, go with EvGA or XFX, being that they are cheaper, and they more trustworthy.
