I'm contemplating on which one to buy.

SAPPHIRE Radeon X1600PRO 512MB 128-bit @ $129 USD
eVGA GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit @ $179 USD

I heard that the X1600PRO was supposed to be the 7600GT's competition but I don't remember where I heard that from, and the reason I'm asking here and not just checking reviews is because when I did check the reviews the 7600GT's Test System was much better than the Test System that the X1600PRO was tested on.

If the X1600PRO is better, I'll have enough money to buy a VF-900 or I'll just have to settle for the VF-700 if I get the 7600GT.

7600GT Test System:

AMD Athlon X2 4400+
DFI LANPARTY UT SLi-DR
1GB (2x512MB) PC-3200
OCZ PowerStream 520W

X1600PRO Test System:

ASUS P5ND2-SLI nForce4 SLI Intel Edition
Intel Pentium 4 630 @ 3.0GHz ... Stock
2х DDR2-533 512Mb Elixir PC4300
COLORSit PSU400U GOLDEN (400W)

Many users will agree with me when I say that the 7600 is better than the x1600. The x1600 is still a nice budget card and many people have gotten good results with it. So if money is a concern the x1600 will not let you down, but I still say the extra $$ are well spent on the 7600. As for the cooler, this cards don't get that hot so a vf700 will be more than enough.

If you have to choose from the two, go with the 7600GT. It will do better than the X1600Pro, even the X1600XT.

However, if you can scrape it, you can pick up a X1800GTO for about $180.

im paying an extra like 70-80 canadian which is like what 50 or so american for a 7900GT from a 7600Gt its worth it trust me, in everyway possible exept maby SLI mode but thats debaitable. the 7900GT is a powerhouse for its price and its a good overclocker.

can you unlock the pipes in the x1800gto?
post #7 of 20
I wouldn't go with either. I don't like the GT for one reason only, the 128-bit memory interface, that's all. I'd go 6800 GS or 7900GT.

As for 7600GT vs X1600PRO........there's your answer.
post #8 of 20
7600GT. But, I'd save and go for the 7900GT..

If you can't...the 7600GT will vmod easily and pwn the 1600...go for it! 90nm is kickin butt!

The 7600GT and the X1800GTO are direct compitition.. one is not clearly better at stock...

X1600Pro/XT/X1800GTO > < Voltmodded 7600GT

You can get better than 7800GT performance out of a voltmodded 7600GT. 90nm 7 series is godly. Plus, the new beta drivers solve the no HDR + AA problem.

Edit: And Nasgul, despite the 128-bit memory bus on the 7600GT, it outperforms the 6800GS by quite a large margin... it even beats out the 6800 Ultra.
