Is it worth upgrading

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My friend is buying my bfg 7900gs, so I want to get one of these:

The slightly overclocked evga 7600gt http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130017

or

Evga 7900gs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130056

Basically he is giving me $85 for my card, so I can spend an extra $20 and get the 7900gs, but is it worth the 8 extra pipelines, with the lower clock speeds?(although I may overclock the card for benchmarks, I intend to leave it stock the rest of the time)

Yes, get the 7900 over the 7600.
