x850xt or 7600GT?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am looking at some gfx cards in the 150-ish range. I plan on buying a 850xt or a 7600GT while waiting for the DX10 cards to come out. Which should I choose? Does SM3 offer a substantial difference? I'd like to know! Thanks

EDIT:: Please also consider the fact I will be playing BF2142 and Unreal Tournament 2007 in the near time future with high settings ::

Definitely a 7600GT, in games with HDR and other visuals SM3 looks much better

well I'm quite happy with my 7600gt and I'm sure that x850 owners will say that theres is great to and the going argument that the x850 has more raw power but lacks in newer games *because of the sm2 thing) but I find that somewhat debunked, my gfx card and opteron beat and overclocked x850 and pentium d at 4ghz....

X850XT = faster, more heat, SM2.0
7600GT = Slower, less heat, SM3.0 (which you can't really use with playable FPS anyway)

You are incorrect, the x850xt performs a little better than the 7600.

heres a bench I'll get a more updated one in a bit, I'm pretty sure I can get about 7500 with this card which is pretty damn good for a budget card (the XfX XXX was the cheapest card for me to buy being only 189$Cad without a rebate and stock clocks of 590mhz/1.6ghz)
