    The x800GTO would give you much better performance the 7600gs. Bare in mind though that the 7600gs card has features that the x800 would not such as sm3.0 support. However if i were you i'ld go for the x800gto.

    I have just switched to Nvidia.............Finding the right drivers are a pain....,I agree with the two above for overall performance the ati wins.

    I would take the X800GTO ... its faster ... the NV solution has the newer Specs if we talk about SM3 for example ... but though it cant really make use of that benefit because of the missing performance

    He meant "He'd go with that (7600) over an X800 IF he has an SLI board". Get it?
