Do you think the 7600GS AGP will sell more than the 7800GS AGP?

  • Yes, it has a price closer to the sweet spot between decent and outrageous.
  • 80 %
  • No, it is still too expensive, even when the price should/ will drop.
  • 20 %

Well To be honest getting it would be up to you. I mean the 7600GS doesnt look that bad. on paper atleast. would love to see soem benchmarks. I recently got the 7800GS so If you are looking to keep AGP for a bit longer until AMD's 4x4 comes out and then upgrade to PCI-e then I would go with the 7800GS great performance for all the newest games out there. IMHO

Yeah--the reason I think this might sell is because there wan't a decent SM 3.0 capable AGP graphics card that was affordable for mainstream except for the x1600 AGP--and now there's the 7600 GS. If it goes down closer to the GeForce 6600 AGP price range, I bet it'll sell like hot cakes IMO.

I don't really see any AGP card 'selling like hot cakes' really. This should be a good competitor to the X1600XT, as they both perform about the same and are around the same price.

It's a nice card for those who still run AGP. I have to agree with Gary. It will compete with the X1600. Overall, not bad though for the money for though.

Actually it'll be competing against the PRO, no XT in AGP.

Actually the XT outperforms the GS and the GS outperforms the pro (more often than not).

Personally I see this as only being an option for people holind on to top of the line AthlonXP systems.

Anyone with an S775, S754-939-940 system should look into a motherboard and card swap since they'll want soething to go with their Conroe/AM2 later, and buying anothe AGP now means it can't be taken with them later, and really neither the X1600P nor the GF7600GS is worth doing that, but getting a true GF7600GT or X1800GTO might be more attractive in the combo upgrade.

Of course people with a really tight budget have little choice, but they're $crewing themselves for later IMO adding another thing to that upgrade list/pricetag.

Well, the truth is, at least in my area, the 6600GT AGP cards are selling like crazy over here. Why? I couldn't even tell you...but again, the 7600GS would certainly beat the 6600GT AGP and it is about the same price...

you must know my system...

AthlonXP clocked at 2.5GHz (aka performance of a 3600+) I would not be kidding to say to swap to PCI-e would require replacing just about every component in my PC...
