a 7600GS or HIS X1600 Pro IceQ Turbo
now normally i would go with nvidia and thru bench 7600GS snap x1600 pro but then come the HIS X1600 Pro IceQ Turbo Which actually have GDDR-3 and clock speed as the same as XT for a very good price, Compare to 7600GS DDR2 and it also have better cooling. Now i am wondering which 1 to choose for performance wise over clocking wise an how long till i have to throw them out for something new. Now i do Game alot put since i only have a 19" wide lcd i dun game @ extreme high resolution i stick with 1024x768 for gaming so which 1 is better for me?hope i don't bored u with my awfully long post.Any Help is Appreciated.

I'd go with the HIS Hightech X1600Pro IceQ Turbo Graphics Card. That'll be plenty for gaming at 1024x768, I use an ATi X800XL yet I still run max settings on some games like Half Life: 2 and Counter-Strike: Source with a Native Resolution of 1280x1024. Go for the X1600Pro since it has better GDDR and Cooling.

I am concerned about the 128Mb ram it offers given today demanding games. And anybody know how well you can overclock this card since allready stock overclocked?

Depending on what cooling you're using, you can probably fish out another 20Mhz(conservative guess)

128MB of GDDR3 Ram? My X800XL has 256... interesting... and I'm wondering why.
Go for a:
Sapphire X1600PRO 256MB GPU - $130. That'll be a very good GPU.
However, do you need AGP 4x/8x or PCIe-16x? If you need AGP go for:
HIS Hightech X1600PRO 512MB GPU - $140.
