Default Graphics Card Question - Nvidia 7800GT & Asus Nvidia 6600

Ok , right now im running a Asus Nvidia 6600 256 Mb PCI-E. And the TV Output for it licks, I have a New TV but its not HD, its a 27 Inch CRT Toshiba, and the tv output is so like messed up u cant see any detailed writing on the tv screen or anything. So would that be the graphics card or because its a s-video output.

And i was thinking of upgrading to a EVGA Nvidia 7800GT 256 MB PCI-E Graphics Card, how big of a difference would i see from my 6600 to the 7800GT, and it has a feature i was reading that said like intergraded something tv, so it shows like perfect settings on 1024x768 (Thats the resolution my tv takes i think).

So yeh i just need opionion's and advice on the 7800GT, because its gonna cost me 399.99 without tax.

7800GT compared to a 6600...there is no comparision. That's all there is to it. 7800GT wins.

well yeh, but im saying will i see a huge difference in gaming, like im running amd 64 3500+ right now , and on the 6600 i can play fear online without much lag on 1024x768, so does that mean 7800gt i can play max max settings without a tiny bit of lag?. and will the tv output be clear and crisp unlike the 6600.

OMG, the 7800GT will smoke the 6600 so bad. I use to have a 6600GT even and since I upgraded to the 7800GT, you can defintely notice smoother graphics and I'm getting higher frame rates as well. Benchmark wise, it's a lot higher than what I had before. Worth every dollar.

Ok, so say you have 1 warrior. It represents the power of the 6600.

Now say you have 99999999999999999999999999999999 warriors. They represent the power of the 7800GT.



6600GT vs 7800GT

7800GT wins hands down.

Period.

No more 6600GT.

I don't even think they'll be on the market in a few months.
