I heard these cards are on par with each other which one is actually the better performer?

I'm assuming you're on an AGP setup.
The 7800 GS is going to be the better card.

Just like your quote says I think.
This link to the XFX site says the 7600GT performs better than the 7800GS in 3Dmark.
Although I don't know how much 3Dmark relates to games since I'm learning up on what's the most important things to look for in GPU's when it comes to gaming.
It's still pretty confusing since I see, good example the 7600GT with 256mb memory and 128bit interface out performing a 7800GS 256mb 256bit.
The clock speeds on the 7600GT are faster though which I'm guessing is what makes it better?
I was looking at a ATi X1650 at one stage which is 512mb but the seller says it's still is slower than the 7600GT which is 256mb.

Neither. Save up mroe money and go PCI-E.
Upgraded my boys PC from a 6600GT to a 7600GT and it didn't make much of a noticable difference. Titan quest still slowed down. Rainbow 6, spiderman 3 all unplayable. Oblivion wasn't great. In the end, I upgraded to PCI-E and got an 8600GT and he can finally play everything!
they are pretty even stock but once you start ocing the 7800gs it will far outperform it and they oc very nicely.

I can't beleive how many clever people have to post "go buy a PCI-E system." :rolleyes:
I have a PCI-E system which plays most games with max detail on a 22"LCD.
Pointless and a waste of there time, yes it does solve performance problems with games but if it's just a PC for my kid to play on. . . .no.
There's geeks here who don't realize there are youngsters who come to these forums for answers who don't get hand outs from daddy's wallet to buy a whole new system.
Thankyou for telling me about the better OC capabilities of the 7800GS and how they are pretty much on par stock.
