By korrupt

  1. Simple question, hopefullly a simple answer.

    Should I go for the 6800GS or the 7600GT? 6800 is slightly more expensive. Both cards are from Gigabyte.

    personally the I would go with option c ;)

    kinda confusing (commas?) how ya put it but:
    the 7600 seems to have better spec apart from 12x1x5, 22.4 and 128 :p I would still choose that though as what it does beat the 6800 on it beats it on pretty well

    Thanks, is there a real difference though? The 7600gt is silent though... So if there isnt a lot of difference, I'd prefer that.

    The high core clock of the 7600GT will come in handy, im getting a 7600GT but not silent, im getting the 20$ cheaper one lol.

    I'd pick the 6800. It's faster, and has a 256 bit bus.
    But probably the newer Geforce 7 architecture is better than the Geforce 6 architecture, so probably there isn't too much diffence between the two.

    Just keep something on mind. Since you want a silent card, they tend to get pretty hot, so you'll need very efficient case cooling. :hotbounce

    found some tests done with a few graphics cards, the 7600 seems to be in the list.

    seems like a lot of people have been comparing and people are choosing the 7600 but also saying to spend a little more and get the 7900
