I don't think it run thoses games very well to tell the truth.

Maybe a very low settings.

And usually Turbo cache is a bad thing when it comes to games.

Straight away matey, I would go for the 7600.

The 7600s are very solid cards and can easily out preform the 7300.

Let me go look at the spec steets.. be right back!

In answer to your question, the GT is far ahead of the GS.

Go for the GT should be a good buy!

Welcome to the forum by the way.

You will find the GT on the left and the GS on the right.

The GT is way way faster!
