Which on of these two cards is better? The 7600GT or the X1600XT. It's looking to me like the 7600 wins due to the higher memory clock, but is it worth the extra $40 for the faster memory? Which one would you get and why?

7600GT is around 10-30% better than a 6800GS depending on the resolution, wich is also superior to the x1600XT in any resolution/aa/af setting you may think. Look at this review below and keep in mind that the 7600GT is another 10% better at least. If you have the money, don't hesitate in buying that 7600GT as ist's a great card for the price.

Seems like the 7600 GT is better than the X1600XT: see chart. Picture quality overall will be better with the 7600GT.

7600GT outperforms the X850XTPE, and the 7800GT would kick the x850xt's arse in probably anything.
