    Man DDR3 meens quite a bit in this situation. Yea it finnaly outdoes the 7600GS if Im thinking right. And the way it should o/c should be a lot better than the X1600XT ever did.

    Infact if it does o/c a lot better and the 3dmark05 score they got is right. It could o/c to close to a 7800GS/X850XT speeds even/maybe.
