Hey All...

I currently have a GeCube Radeon X700 256mb 128bit (DDR) and i want to upgrade my video card cause i want to play some games at comfortable fps. (ie. BF2, obvilion, fear, farcry) I was looking at the eVGA geforce 7600GT CO 256mb and it caught my attention.... i was hoping if i could get an advice on weather the upgrade path is good or not...

rest of my system:

P4 530J 3.0ghz 1mb l2 cache
Asrock 775DUAL-915GL
1gb ddr 400 ram
x700 radeon 256mb
160gb WD cavair SE
16X dvd rw
450watt PSU (generic brand)


THX for help... appreciate it

Excellent choice my friend. Excellent price/performance ratio, plus none of the problems that ATi cards offer, like buggy drivers, resource hogging control panel, poor performance with older games, poor performance with opengl games, fragilitly, having to bios flash to gain performance.....etc.....etc.... :roll:

Some might try and sell you on a competitive ATi product, but just say "no thanks"......you be glad you did later...

I'm sending an email to Nv to put you on payroll.....I'll use a few of your posts as reference, so if you get a check in the mail soon, dont forget your brother in the buckeye state. :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol: 

That said, he's right. Although its not a monumental performance jump, the gains will be noticable and its a fine GPU....can't argue that; nice price tag too.

ofcourse not, the x1600 is not the best video card in it's class... that's why i am going to buy the 7600GT and sell that old radeon :S (hoping for $50++)
