Wow, the 7600GT is a hellishly awesome value card!!

I must say, I'm absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the performance of the 7600GT I put in the new rig I built. Just messing around with a few games (BF2, and CoD2) and both run buttery arse smooth at native res of 1440x900 and detail settings on high with 4xAA. Totally impressed that that tiny little card produces so much power. And not to mention how darn cheap it is too, I think I paid something like $139 for it.

So, if you're looking for a new video card, and you're not looking to buy high-end uber expensive equipment look no further than the 7600GT. I would imagine that a pair of these in SLI would be sweeeeeeeeet.

Ok, just wanted to let u know how awesome this card is

Cool, how does it compare to the Mobility X1600? I suspect it is better right?

Yeah it kicks it right square in the ass mate. I haven't even had a chance to clock the 7600 yet either, but I can only imagine how much better it will perform with the extra clocks. Simply an amazing video card.

Sounds cool, what are the temps like, cause I would think that with a nice cooler and a vmod it would be mad.

Couldn't tell ya, sorry. I didn't get a chance to look at the gpu temps in the small amount of time I've had to play with it so far. I would imagine that you're right about it if it had a better hsf and some vmods. Might be something to consider. Best part about vmodding on a card like this is that it's inexpensive, so if for some reason you f something up beyond repair it doesnt break the bank to have it replaced.

True, but we generally fix stuff, my dads mobo started having a weird prob it would work with one dimm in any slot but not two. So we traced the problem down to a mosfet that was bad, and replaced it and now the board works, we also fixed his PSU. Sorry a bit off topic just saying unless it is something that we can't buy we fix it.

i think my 7800GTX is on its last legs tbh, expect its worth looking into getting two of these and OCing them. Only problem then would be the money it would take to get my watercooling to cope. plus two off these would be looking about £220 when i could get a 7900GT for cheaper and with an overclock im sure that would hammer two OCd 7600s
