the x850xt pwns the 7600gt, more pixel pipelines, better memory inteface, you don't need shader model 3.0 right now anyway

The X850 XT PE performs better, but the 7600 GT gives more for your money. Depends what you're looking for. If you want more performance, the X850XT PE or the 7900 GS is the way to go. If you're looking to save money and get better bang for your buck, get the 7600 GT.

Well, it's handy to have Shader Model 3.0 anyways. As time progresses, it'll be handier to have Shader Model 3.0 as games will utilize it more and more.

I would go with the 7600GT. Shader Model 3.0 is in there and if I were you, I would want it. Always be prepared for the future.
