Hehe, glad to have helped

I've tried to do a review search, but can't seem to find one to show you the comparations. But the 7600GT would definietly be the better buy.

I wish I didn't get the 6800GS now. Its a great card and all, yet, my 9800PRO 128mb ran games fine that I played, and the 6800GS is already starting to trail in games, not being able to run at full settings, etc, and my 9800PRO faired well as well (though it was old).
I would have been much better for me to have waited, and I'd still have 150 on me... grrr, haha.

Oh well, its an okay card anyhow...
