7600 or X1600?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok so basically I'm building a budget PC for my aunt, it has a Intel Celeron D 336 Prescot 2.8 and a gig of DDR2 533, I want a decent graphics card under $200 which will still play today's games so that whenever I'm at my aunt's house I can get to gaming a bit occasionally

Which of the following should I get?
XFX 7600GT - $189
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150141

XFX 7600GS - $143
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150146

Sapphire X1600PRO 512MB - $130
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102653

Asus X1600XT Silent - $180
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121548

So which should I get? I like the Asus because its totally passive and silent, the X1600PRO is 512MB, the 7600GS is cheapest and can be overclocked to the 7600GT or higher (except for the memory which is GDDR2 but thats no big deal)

The 7600GT blows the others away. I'm not sure how the 7600GS performs, but I think the better choice would be between the 7600GT and the 6800GS.

I decided to go with the X1600XT, the combination of the silent heatpipe cooler and the fact that it had the highest clock speeds won me over, plus I miss HDR + AA already

The 7600GT is a solid performer. Id go for that.

Edit: Unless you really do want the HDR+AA.

Yeah.. The 7600GT isnt even a fair comparison for the X1600. The X1600 just has NO chance unless its heavily overclocked.. with the 7600 at stock.
