View Full Version : G6800XT or G7600GS

04-12-06, 09:40 AM

This is Ayan Debnath from INDIA.

I am going to buy a PCIExpress Graphics card for my new AMD64 3000+ system.

Due to my very low budget (under about $130) which one should I go for ?
XFX G6800XT (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150130)
XFX G7600GS (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150146)

Please, suggest the best one for me under my budget.

Thank you all.

tbh, this thread might have gotten more response if it were in the gfx card forum... Perhaps some mod can move it for you, when it's seen here.

Yea this thread doesn't belong here. I vote for the 7600GS though.

Yeah, it does take peeps awhile to figure out. Though, and that said, it also means that many thinking of gfx cards at the time, who are visiting that forum might not see the thread to reply...

A big hesitation I would have with recommending a 7600 GS was something I read sometime back about disabled pipelines, and suggestion that certain methods of doing this (by causing actual damage to a chip to prevent them from running), could possibly grow into greater damage to the chip. The issue there would be longevity, and how well it would hold up, vs. it's non damaged counterparts...

Suggestions such as adding too much doper in the mfg process were mentioned (if people figured out how to unlock the unused pipes, and that started hurting sales of the higher lined cards) was mentioned, as I seem to remember, along with what the long term consequences could be.

Performance aside, if this were going on, I'd have to recommend a 6800 GT, if this in fact is what could be going on, unless either I knew the person only planned on having it a short time till they could afford another card, or b. with a disclaimer, to cover my conscience in case something did go bad as a result.

Hmm... The article was more speculation at how it could be done from a mfg standpoint, then inside info at what is however...

sorry friends, I am very new to this FORUM. I saw 'General Forums - Open Forum', so I posted here.

Well either way it seems as if the 7600GS is winning.

see the price of 6800XT is now $95.
I can't able to ignore the price against 7600GS/GT

I'd go with the 76.

The 7600 GS is barely faster than a 6600 GT. I mistakenly voted for the 7600 GS but I thought 'twas a 7600 GT. The 6800 XT PCI-E will be faster at higher resolutions. Also, since 'tis a PCI-E 6800 proly based on the NV42 core it will have fully functional PureVideo hardware.

Yes it has fully functional PureVideo hardware and will be faster than a 7600 GS.


[EDIT] I'm actually unsure of how fast a 6800 XT is. I thought 'twas comparable to a 6800 GS. But from the looks of things 'tis slower than a 6800 vanilla. In that case you're better off with a 7600 GS.
