So what if your card iss 256-bit? You card was from the high end series when it was released, these cards are not, they are mid-range. Being 256-bit doesn't mean the card will be great, the x800GTO is easily outperformed by a 7600GT even though the 7600GT only is 128-bit. There is more than just one spec that goes into a video card.
At the beginning the 7600 series (esp. the 7600GT) was a great bargain.
Yes it was crippled down to a 128mb bus, but the high clocks made up for it.
