Here is some info to help your choice based on the cards mentioned
Quote:
7300 GT 256MB (350/667) (1.4/10.7) (PCIe) 128-bit DLDVI
- 8 pixel shader units – 8 TMUs – 4 ROPs - 5 vertex shader units
It’s marginally slower than a X1600 Pro, thus it being a bit slower than a 6600 GT. Slow GDDR2 memory cripples performance.

7600 GS 256/512MB (400/800) (3.2/12.8) (AGP/PCIe) 128-bit DLDVI
- 12 pixel shader units – 12 TMUs – 8 ROPs - 5 vertex shader units
Performance wise is the card pretty identical to a 6800. This means ~15 % faster than a 6600 GT.

7600 GT 256MB (560/1400) (4.48/22.4) (AGP*/PCIe) 128-bit DLDVI
- 12 pixel shader units – 12 TMUs – 8 ROPs - 5 vertex shader units
It’s a bit faster than a 6800 Ultra and therefore is it natural to compare it to a 7800 GS. The X1800 GTO has a similar performance. Good overclocker.
* Only Leadtek WinFast A7600 GT TDH and XFX 7600 GT!

X1600 Pro 128/256MB (500/780) (2.0/12.5) (AGP/PCIe) 128-bit DLDVI
- 12 pixel shader units – 4 TMUs – 4 ROPs – 8 z compare units - 5 vertex shader units
A 6600 GT is a bit faster.

X1300 XT 128-512MB (500/800) (2.0/12.8) (AGP/PCIe) 128-bit DLDVI
- 12 pixel shader units – 4 TMUs – 4 ROPs – 8 z compare units - 5 vertex shader units
Essentially a X1600 Pro using a new core.

X1600 XT 128/256MB (590/1380) (2.36/22.1) (PCIe) 128-bit DLDVI
- 12 pixel shader units – 4 TMUs – 4 ROPs – 8 z compare units - 5 vertex shader units
The performance is similar to a 6800. It’s most likely crippled by only having 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs. When more pixel shader intensive games are released an increase in performance is expected.

X1650 Pro 256MB (600/1400) (2.4/22.4) (AGP/PCIe) 128-bit DLDVI
- 12 pixel shader units – 4 TMUs – 4 ROPs – 8 z compare units - 5 vertex shader units
Essentially a X1600 XT using a new core.

It gives you a good indication to why clock speeds are not the critical factor and that other key concepts that need to be taken into account.

TheX1650pro would be my suggestion or if you can push the boat out a little on the budget the 7600GT would be even better

Personally i think the X1650PRO will serve you very well.

why not stay with your x600 till you save up $200 for X1950pro.
OO wait mayb 350w cant handle X1950pro with OC.
if you cant wait than X1650Pro.

Chozart you were right when you were talking about the DDR3 version of the 7300GT it is a phenominal overclocker. When pushed to their peak they can outperform a 7600GS and x1650pro in many instances. http://www.guru3d.com/article/content/355/18/
That review has a 7300GT compared to a 6800 and 7600GS. Keep in mind when looking at the benchmarks for the 7600GS that it is a 7600GS with DDR3.
