Default GeForce 7600. GT or GS?

Whats the difference between GT and GS in a video card? Is it worth the extra $70?

Default Re: GeForce 7600. GT or GS?

(approx. (varies with company))

GT specs

580mhz core clock
1500mhz GDDR3 memory
256mb memory
12 pixel piplines

GS specs

400mhz core clock
500mhz DDR memory
256mb memory
12 pixel piplines

so basically the GT uses the faster GDDR3 memory running at 1500Mhz (3 times faster than the GS) and the GPU core clock is roughly 45% faster

GT is definately a better buy

Hmm, well im buying an eVGA card. But I dono, I like to have the extra 70 bucks in my pocket. I mean the 7600 GS still beats the 7300 GT right? Cause by the specs it does, exept for the memory cause the 7300 GT has 512 MB.

Yeah, the 7300GT is entry-level.
