Which is the best bang for buck out of these 2 videocards?

Im going to be building a system soon, and i want some recommendations on the video card. im getting nvidia, im trying to stay away from ati and i only want a single card for now. which of these would be the most powerful?

1. 6800 series

2. 7600 series

i believe these two should probably be around the same price, so which one is more powerful? im confused because i remember when the 6800 came out it was top of the line {obviously} and i know the 7600 is a good midrange card but its newer, so maybe its more powerful than a 6800? any help would be appreciated.

  1. The 7600GT roughly equals the 6800U (top GF6), depending on the game/settings. From what some have said the 7600GT handles HDR better, while Digit-life's charts show the 6800U OC version (25MHz factory core overclock) beating a reference clocked 7600GT in almsot every test. The 7600GT would win the pricing battles from what I have seen, and it should also be the better overclocker. 7600GT gets my vote over any GF6 series card.
  2. I'd say get the 7600 as well because it's newer technology. Also I think it's faster than the 6800 if I'm not mistaken...
  3. The 7600. It's at least just as fast as the 6800 series and consumes less power. It also has an updated feature set.
  4. ok so a 7600 sounds like a better choice, i do know that it runs cooler and that is something to think about considering i live in arizona. the games il mainly be playing are the whole battlefield series including the upcoming bf2142 and the upcoming armed assault. thanks for the help guys its very appreciated
