ok i am looking to replaces my xfx 7600gt oc and i was wondering would i be better off saveing and buying one 8800gts witch would take awhile or buying 2 8600gts i have done a quite a bit of research on the cards and just wanted too see where u guys think my money is better spent. I am also upgradeing the rest of of my comp too wich is ECS KN1 n force 4 (in my op not a great mobo) 2 gigs ocz platuim 250 gig rapture amd 64 3800 socket 939 i know my spelling sucks
Well the 640MB 8800GTS is $409.99 and the 320MB is $309.99. Both are available at that price via Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! . Your 7600 GT is better than the 8600GTS. I would personally go ahead with the 320MB 8800GTS. If you are willing to wait until the end of this year to upgrade you might be able to get your hands on the nVidia 9 series.
thanks for the info but the 7600gt and the 8600gts are not the same just look at the benchmarks the favor the 8600 alot more look ate some of the reviews on newegg for the 8600gts And by the way whats withe the newegg advertising u are doing
Yes true. The 8 series memory speed and core clock is faster. If your gonna upgrade then go with a GC that has more video RAM (GDDR3) than what you currently have. The 8800 GTS is probably one of the fastest cards you can get your hands on and it has quite a bit of memory.

It's not advertising. Newegg just happens to be one of the most popular and reliable sites for computer parts, and it's a convenient reference for prices.
Trust me, we have strict policies for advertising here, but showing prices on Newegg is one thing we do tolerate.
And as for my $.02, go with the 8800GTS 320 or 640.
Newegg doesn't advertise. Its probably one of the best places you can get computer parts.
You aren't going to see much of a difference going from a 7600 GT to a 8600 GTS, even 2 of them. Do yourself a favor and save up for either version of the 8800GTS.
Not to sound like a moron, but the 8600 is going to give him significaintly better performance than his 7600. Look at the benchmarks:
I didn't make it!
Well, I'd recommend getting the master-blaster-123 KO card.
It even comes with a copy of DOOM 1.1 BETA A and a free handjob.

SLi is overrated. You can trust me on that. The cost vs reward for the performance gain you get isn't worth it. Especially with how buggy NVIDIA's SLi drivers are. Stick with one 8600 or 8800 and you won't be disappointed.
