View Full Version : Just bought a XFX 7600 GT 256mb (580mhz core)

Why? because I thought about it and I don't believe that I'll be buying a new system for aleast a year and a half. One of the biggest issues for me is money and as long as I can get semi- decent game play out of my system, I'll be more then content with my current specs (which are:)

AMD Athlon XP2600+ (running @ 2.0ghz)
Abit NF7-S (Nforce 2 Board)
1Gb Dual Channel Samsung Branded PC3200 DDR333
XFX GeForce 7600GT 256mb 580M
40gbX2 Maxtor 7200RPM SATA drives
Pioneer 16x DVR+/-RW DL

What do you all think? Personally I think I'll be good for most of new games that are out and coming out. I choose to go with getting a 7600 GT because I couldn't justify spending more then $200 bucks on upgrading anything in my system. Everything works fine as it is now and nothing I could upgrade to would make an incredible difference in my daily computing experience. The next big thing I'll probably do is upgrade my hard drives to two faster SATA drives ( the Seagate 250gb seem pretty sweet).

With XFX it seems like there are multiple versions of the 7600GT. There is a model with the part number UDF-3A and it apparently the core clock speed is only 560 Mhz, but the UDE-3A model has a core clock speed of 580 Mhz and can be OCed to about 624 Mhz~

price for it? cause if you spent over 180$ you should have gotten a 8600.

for that price I would have gotten the 7900 GS or better yet 8600 GTS

My guess is he's talking Canadian money. If that's the case then he's not getting burned.
