Default 2 7600 GT's vs. x1900 XT

Would two of the 7600 GTs put together be worse, better or the same as 1 x1900 XT? I'm asuming it's either going to be the same or better.. Thanks alot in advance

EDIT: And if it is better, how much would you say by?

X1900XT any day - not because its better, I'm guessing they'll be about the same, but because it'll be easier to get rid of in the future

I'd say the X1900XT would beat the 7600GT x2 any day.

If your going for a killer ATi card check out www.hisdigital.com , they make amazing ATi based cards compared to the stock versions. Especially the version with 'Turbo'

tehczar, why HIS? Its just manufacturer overclocking....so they can jack up the price when you can do it yourself.

Haha, notice how he's been 'recommending' them in every video card related thread? I wonder if he works for HIS. If you ask me, they suck. Sure, they're cheap and all, but after finding out that my X1900 XT was fitted with Infineon GDDR chips instead of the reference Samsung ones, I no longer support HIS.

Its like eVGA and their 7900GT "recall" They changed from Samsung to Infineons with looser timings.

Yeah, it sucks. Now I get such crappy memory overclocks.
