    I still would take the X850Xt over the X1300xt. The only game that uses PS3 is Splinter Cell. All other games so far run on PS2, and any future games probably won't really run on the x1300xt. The x850 is only $20 more than any other of those cards.

    X850XT $98.99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102688R

    same goes for the 6600gt,7600gt and the like, new games arent gonna run well on low end hardware, but if thats what u can afford and you want a current gen card the x1300xt is a better choice then 6600gt anyday, it dosnt loose as much perf from HDR or aa use and can do them both at lower res's!!!

    at what 1024?

    any card below a 7800 or x1800 is a doorstop ;) (the x800xtpe/x850xt pe is pretty much same as x1800 perf)

    The 7600GT OC is a good card for the money it has the same 1.1ns video ram as the 1900XTX.

    its higher then the 1800gto in older game perf and in newer games its faster then the x1800xt(shader based games) its a very good card, overclocked its more then a match for the x1800xt ;)

    as to the 7600gt, blah, x1800gto kills it, as does the x800xt pe!!!!

    i dont go below 1280x1024 and a 7600gt or 1650xt wouldnt cut it for me :)

    must be getting crappy fps then or use driver based hax to get better perf like speed vs quiltiy modes, i have used a 7600gt overclocked and it dosnt even come close to my x800xt pe let alone my x1900xt

    1600x1200 2x t3 aa, 16xaf, adaptive aa(2d aa) and max quility on all driver settings, never see anything under 60fps on any fps games, only 1 game i have gets lower and thats the horribly unoptimized oblivion!!!

    oh and lets see you 7600gt do farcry with hdr7 and fsaa2 enabled at 1600x1200 with 16x af and adaptive aa
