ya i saw that too. it has specs similar to the 6800gs. im no expert, but im guessing that the only difference is that it has vivo and it has higher speeds.

128 bit is not the memory...lol, it does have 256MB of memory and yes it most definitely does perform better than the 6800GS.

When did they come out with that chipset

I thought it went from 6800, to 7800. No idea there was a 7600..

the only thing that lets that card down is the 128 bit interface and maybe the 12 pipelines but its better than the GS because of the higher clocks and its the newer 7 series gpu

I said I wasn't going PCI-E...well, I think I'm wrong.

I'm aiming for this card with my P4 540 that will come someday

This card, I like, mostly the price!
