  1. Hi

    I am looking for a new graphics card to match my system below, I am thinking abt the £150 (i think $280) mark. PCI Express.

    I am looking at:

    Gainward 6800GS GLH 512MB
    7600gt 256MB

    These both are in the price range that I want, obviously the 7600gt is the newer model but the 6800gs has twice the ram.

    Which would you suggest??

    My system:

    AMD 64 3200
    2GB DDR400
    MSI NEO4 Platinum Mobo
    XP + Suse Linux 10.1

    I currently have: ATI X550 128MB

    Phil

    In the usa, you can get a 7900gt or a x1800xt for $280

    but out of those to get the 7600, its newer and preforums a little better then the 6800, if you want to get a better compison, check some benchmarks

    The 7600 wins. It's newer, faster, and future proof (until DX10 comes out :( )
