Anyone have any experience with a Geforce 7600GS (AGP) 512mb version?
COMPUSA is selling them for like 130 bucks tomarrow only
I am currently using a Geforce FX 5700 Ultra (I know, I know)
So I am trying to find the best upgrade possible, with a very limited budget, even the 130 is a bit high to be honest.
Can anyone advise please?
I have the Sparkle 7600GS 512mb AGP & I have had some problems with drivers. I also had an overheat issue last weekend but the stock cooler which comes with the Sparkle is not so good & my case is not very well Vented. Oh and I was overclocking so probably my faulty. Other than that it is a good card with a good number of pipelines & I only paid about £10 more than the 256mb one so I am happy. Most of all it has SM3.0 which means I can play games I couldn't with my old Geforce4
It is difficult to evaluate AGP cards now as the cost is higher & they don't seem to make the GDDR3 versions (normally GT) for the AGP Interface.
I actually don't live in the US either, but Canada is probably a lot better than Bulgaria for PC parts. For whatever reason, most video cards seems to get a markup of around 30-50% in Canada vs US (odd considering i think many are made in Canada). All other parts here are similarly priced to their US counterparts though.
Well here the prices are so scary compared to the states... a x800GTO which in the states can be found for something like $120 here is $300... Thats why when i come to the states next month i hope to get some PC parts for extra cheap if possible. I want to get a 200GB hdd and maybe some cheap ram.... as for the GF7600GS its a pretty good card and it sure will be an upgrade from a GF 5700ULTRA so you should enjoy it... As for the 512mb VRAM i doubt it would be a problem
