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?
Thanks!

There was a topic about a 7600 GT with 256 Mb for 90$ around here. I just noticed it but it was one of those US only things so i barely read it. You should take a look though.

I saw that too, but it was for PCI-E

and like 110$ of it was mail in rebates... no thanks there!

You can get a 7600GT PCI-E at Circuit City after rebates for 89 bucks.


Dont know much about the 7600GS AGP prob not a bad card.

Google it and see what you can find about it.

dont get the 512mb verison your gonna choke your GFX card because the all the 7600's have only 128 bit bus so 512 is overkill stick to the 256mb verisons.

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.

Good luck, hope I have been of help.

I just got an email from buy.com about a 7600gs for 49.99 (with $40 in rebates and $20 off it using google checkout). That is an insane deal.

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 :)
