Noob question. 6800 vs 7600GS vs 7900gs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a Geforce 6800 no sub name.

Exact card is eVGA GeForce 6800 Video Card 128-A8-N343-DX.

You can unlock some pipelines and its got only 128mb mem.

But it seems to outperform my 7600gs. Not by alot, and maybe its my imagination but did I get ripped when I bought the 7600gs 256mb?

When I first got the 6800 and used riva tuner, overclocked, it blew what I had previously directly out of the water.. 7600gs seems kind of bleh.

One other question.

Im upgrading to a 7900gs along with a new motherboard that uses pci express.

XFX PVT71PUDP3 GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 EXTREME


core clock 525mhz pipelines 20 memory clock 1550mhz stock.

What are your thoughts?

7600s arnt the best but they have 3x the shading power of the 6's anyway. im in sli and i think it runs just great.. i cant oc it by much though.. they say 7600gs > 6800gtx .. thats why i got these and they were cheap!
post #3 of 8
hmm sublime0 is right they are supposed to be better but who knows they do indeed have 3x the power!

Interesting specs...Those 8800s are way overkill, can we see a pic of your case?

ALSO, the 7900GS will SMOKE 7600GS in SLI, it's nearly a 7900gt and when its overclocked its as good/better than a 7900gt, best bang for the buck right now.

My OC'd 7900GS without a voltmod is most likley faster than a 7950GT with 256mb mem. If i were to voltmod it would probably beat it by a fair margin.
The 7900GS is by the far the most OC'able card in the 7 series.

i beg to differ i dont believe my 7600gs will be smoked by a 7900gs considering 2 7600gs in sli is like 1 7900gt so ive seen the statistics!

that is COMPLETELY false. 2x 7600GS's are only barely faster than one 7600GT - if it truly was the case then you would easily be in the 4,500 point region in 3DMark06
