Default How is this??

How is the 7600gt, I'm thinking of getting one temporally with my new build until the Ati comes out along with more DX10 cards.

I was looking at this one..

If anyone has ever owned one of these cards tell me how they run and all that nice stuff..

Runs well. Can run most games at mid to high settings without a huge problem. Really a great card for the price.

Save your money man,

the X800 can hack it a lil while longer.

Just overclock it.

I agree. You don't need to preserve the video cards life so just stick with it.

Yeah, the X800 should be fine for a while. Although the 7600GT's are excellent.

well what is better, because my X800 is AGP and I'm doing a new build, so I need PCi-e.

If your new mobo doesn't have an agp slot then go ahead and buy the 7600. If your new mobo has agp I would stick with the X800
