More about : card advice raven_87 March 20, 2007 3:57:49 PM the 7600gs might just be slightly better overall, but sure as hell not by too much. I honestly wouldnt waste my time buying it. Curmudgeon5462 March 20, 2007 4:09:00 PM I agree, if your gonna upgrade from a 6800, go to at least a 7800, or consider an ATI X1900 or above. I would recomend saving some more money up for an 8800 GTS, so you will be able to run DX 10 games later on, if your system is up to par.

Otherwise forget it. prozac26 March 20, 2007 8:13:25 PM Not worth the time. dagonoth March 20, 2007 9:34:06 PM It won't be a significant upgrade, so unless you need SM 3.0 for a specific game then its not worth it. kaotao March 20, 2007 10:17:04 PM Quote:It won't be a significant upgrade, so unless you need SM 3.0 for a specific game then its not worth it. His 6800 has sm3.0 support, so he wouldn't even have that advantage going for him. prozac26 March 20, 2007 10:18:47 PM The 6-series cards all have SM 3.0.
