It goes to show you how little a company like Nvidia Or ATI cares about past generation cards. I have 2 7800GTX's in SLI and they run sweet. Im crayolas are buffed here folks.

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. ^^
You are so wrong about the 7600GT not trumping a 68 Ultra - you really should check your reviews and benchmarks before making such a daft assumption.

OK to finally put this matter to bed could someone with a 6800GT or ultra pls post there absolute best benchmark scores @ ANY resolution or AA settings in ANY game or test suite so that I can show you how wrong the assumption is that a 7600GT cant beat a 6800Ulta.

im even willing to run my card at stock verus the NV40 card @ its best overclock.

any volunteers???

Superfly, yes I was only assuming because I thought the different memory buses (128bit vs 256bit) do matter at high AF/AA but if you say the 7600GT doesn´t suffer a huge performance hit with high AF/AA, then I trust you man! I know you don´t BS around or are bias.

What games do you have installed right now? If you have time and want to run a benchmark in a GPU limited one, maybe at 1280x960 (or 1280x1024), with no AA/AF, then with 8AF/2AA and finally with 16AF/4AA. TIA!

In NVIDIA's eyes, probably it is. A card is dead when a company stop supporting it properly. Judging from how the last few drivers (84.xx) work on my card, it seems NVIDIA no longer cares about the 6 series. Much how FX support became slower and more glitchy when the 6x00 series came out, it's the same deal now that the 7x00 series is here.

Hi mate - I've got Obvilion, FEAR, Q4, CSS, & NFSMW installed right now.

The X3 demo is good for Hi res/AA benching also.

TBH for a fair comparison I need someone with a 3500+ and a 68GT or Ultra.

your 05 score beats mine by around 2000 points if i remeber correctly ....what does your card get in "03" ?

EDIT: i screwed up ! (dissregard above posts)

3dmark03 12,500
3dmark05 5500

your 05 score bests mine by quite a bit ! but "i" knew the 7600GT was faster right up there with the 7800GS alot of the time ...

I have no idea - have'nt run 03 with this card, I will do tonight though.

also - you have a 78GT?? - are you refering to your old card - I hope so otherwise your 78GT is running rather slow!!
