    Galaxy has introduced a 7600GS for the aging, but still used AGP slot. The card comes with the usual heat sinks, one for the GPU and one for the HSI chip. It comes with a 128MBit interface and either 256 or 512MB DDR2 memory. The GPU will run at 400MHz using 12 pipes.

    LOL
    Is it for sale yet? I was waiting for this card to be released to replace a defective X800GTO for my brother, though I was hoping for an AGP version of the GT :(
    Hope the GT version follows soon ;)

    You should get a 7800 AGP instead - but that would be more expensive.

    Is agp really a port? Or is it a slot?

    I'd like to see the pricing on this part, when it becomes available. I was thinking of buying a 6800 GS for my brother (his GeForce4 MX is getting a little bit slow ;) ), but perhaps the 7600 will offer better value.

    Not sure which would be better - you should also consider the ATI X800 range, they aren't bad and prices have gone down. The only problem is they don't use shader model 3.

    Sapphire X800 Pro: R 2,273 @ http://www.digitalplanet.co.za/shop/product.asp?StockID=86434
    Legend 6800 GS: R 1,478 @ http://www.digitalplanet.co.za/shop/product.asp?StockID=91069

    Both cards have 12 pixel pipelines and 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 RAM. The difference is that the 6800 GS supports SM3 and is around 800 bucks cheaper... guess which of the two I'd rather buy?

    I'm not saying that the X800s are bad cards, it's just that where I live, Radeons are both rare and expensive.
