I havn't really paid this card any mind at all. I'm upgrading a comp to PCIe mobo so I need a new card

I was considering this for the price, but what I do need to know is how does it stack the 6600GT and how well can you OC one of these cards.

I have one of these cards.

I also "had" a 6600GT. When I had a problem with my 6600GT, I upgraded to this.

As to performance? Here's my Futurmark comparison URL showing the 7600GS with a mild overclock (still using passive cooling). http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=452201
Score: 2683, and yes this is at the 1280x1024 defaults.

With a heatsink/fan combo, I'd be able to really overclock this fiend! So if you are getting one with a heatsink/fan already onboard, I suspect you'll get 900Mhz RAM/535MHz core easy.

In Half Life 2: Episode one, I'm able to turn the details on HIGH (the max), Reflect ALL, 2x AA, 4x AS and run smooth as silk at 1156x816 (need a better monitor before I go higher, at higher resolutions it's only 60hz and that hurts on a CRT).
