IS the nVidia 6 Series dead?
 
Just wondering if i shpuld go for a 6800Ultra/XT or a 7600GT. They are both similarly priced. Does the 7 series have lots of new features or is the 6 series good enough to play Crysis (2007) or UT2007 at decent fps?

I would go with the 7 series. The 6 is done meaning they stop making them as far as I know. I'll be switching soon.

In terms of raw power however iv've been told the 6800 Ultra blows the 7600Gt out of the water,

When lots of a AA/AF come into play, yes. The 7600GT has only 12pixelpipes and 5 vertex units (vs. 16/6) but not only it has the improved 7 series pipelines which perform better, especially with shader heavy games and HDR, but it has also higher clocks. The XXX edition is clocked at 590/1600.

My poor 6600GT too.

I'm still thinking whether I should fork out the R400/$65 for Oblivion. I don't wanna pay that much for a game if the best I'm going to get is about 20 FPS.

If my 9600pro plays oblivion fine on med/low settings, i'm sure a 6600GT will do high settings. :p

I'm probably going to pass the 6800GT down to my brother soon, so to me it is dead. ;)

id take the 7600gt... performs faster than the 6800gs in games which is similar to the 6800gt in performance.... theres no way we can tell how any card will run crysis or ut2007... iirc they said for ut2007 that theyre aiming to get it runing at 1024 with high details on a midrange system when the game comes out...

with my old 7800gtx i was getting as low as 20fps (after tweaks) outdoors.... thres no way a 6600gt will run it fine unless its on low settings with low draw distance

hmm, the 7x series has a few new features, and a little more optimisation, but no where near enough to put the 7600 ontop of a 6800 ultra. That said, where are you going to find a 6800 ultra that isnt overpriced? Most people are getting 6800GSs cause of both price and availability, and if they wanted the 6800 ultra, they generaly baught a 7800gs cause street price and availability was lower. ^^

I'd say it's pretty dead at nVIDIA.

I'll be upgrading from a 6800 GT to a 7900 GTX this week. :)
