nearest i can tell from the reading i've been doing, is the 7600GT sits right in the middle. between the 6800GT/Ultra, and the 7800GT. atleast bench wise it does !

Thats not a bad jump. I experienced something similar when I switched from an oced ti4200 to a 6800nu. Ive had like 1700 points in 3dmark03 and my best with the 6800 was 11170.

My 6800GT @ 400/1.19 does just under 6k on 3DMark05. In Quake4 I'm playing at 1280x1024 with 2xQ AA/16xAF, vsync enabled, and everything maxed (except for that "Ultra" setting- no way my system could handle that) and I'm getting silky smooth framerates. I'll run it tonight with FRAPs to see what they are- I'm guessing 60-ish or higher. This is on a K8V SE Dlx with a 3700 (s754) and a gig of cheap ram. Not bad though, plays the lost coast level extremely well also. I can have everything maxed @ 1024x768 and it's still very playable (probably 30 -45 fps, will have to check with FRAPS again also).

If you can, I say get the 7600, or even better, the 78 or 7900GT. The later two would be the better choice.

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
Heh. Turn off the grass and i'm sure you'd get a big boost..

I still think the 7800GTX is still a highend piece of hardware. The 7900 isn't that old yet to get mainstream attention.

I have 2 7800GTX's and play anything thats out their at max beuty.

So how well does the 7600GT run? Do you have Oblivion, CoD2, FEAR, or BF2 to compare what settings you run?

I'm on an overclocked 6800GT and overclocked Barton-M.

I currently run CoD2 at 1024x768, 4xAF or 8xAF (whatever in-game AF is set to), and all high settings except for one or two at "normal" like dynamic light and shadow smoke or something.

Hello,

Oblivion is running @ 1280x960, max settings + the usual .ini tweaks & 2xAA + Bloom (25-50fps outside)

FEAR is @ 1152x864 2xAA, max settings, no soft shadows (40/63/138) 0%/2%/98%

Dont have CoD2 sorry and BF2 was uninstalled a while ago.

X3 benchmark @ 1280x1024 4xAA & 16xAF was 39fps.

Firingsquad has an article on Oblivion performance with mainstream cards.

The 7600GT beats the 6800GT by 30-50%.
