    It seems like NVIDIA's partners are playing with the tought of bridging the 7600GT and 7900GT down to AGP. The 7600GT would replace the 6600GT AGP, while the 7900GT AGP should become the AGP performance king out there. The price tags should hover somewhere around $250-$300 US Dollars.

    Well Considering the Gainward Bliss 7800GS(20 Pipe 7800GT Bridged) is essentially already that, not really anything all that exciting

    lol 200-300 dollars my butt. the GS was 350+ when it came out. they are about 75 dollars cheaper now how ever.


    wonder how the 7600 gt and the 7800 gs compare.

    Well the 7900GT is a 24-pipe, overclocking beast with a few extra performance features than the 7800GT. The 7900GT supposedly outperforms even the 7800GTX pretty easily

    7600GT would be nice, if they dont do something stupid like cut it back to 8 pipes.
