This GeForce card, based on the NVIDIA 7600 GT series chipset, is an amazing
performer amongst cards of its category. In fact some of the scores that it
pulled off were even comparable to the mid-range gaming cards. We tested the
cards using an AM2 processor on an ASUS M2N32 SLI motherboard with 1 GB DDR2 RAM
and 7200 rpm 80 GB SATA HDD. The card doesn’t disappoint you with its
performance most of the time. 

Price: $ 240 (2-yrs warranty)
Key Specs: 256 MB/128-bit/GDDR3, Built for Vista, One dual-Link DVI supports 2560×1600 resolution display, DVI support.

It has a 128-bit 256 MB GDDR3 memory, and can support up to 2560×1600
resolution. It scored 6399 on 3D Mark05-a score much higher than 5153 scored
by XFX 6800 GT that won the budget gaming category in the shootout we did (refer
to page 124, May 2006) this year. Even the MSI NX 7600GT-the winner in
mid-range gaming segment then-had scored 5995 3D Marks. It fared better over
the MSI card in scores for F.E.A.R. (85 fps) at 1024×768 and no AA/AF to the
latter’s 59 fps for same test at AA4x/AF8x. So it went past the MSI card by a
small margin scoring 48 FPS to the latter’s 46 fps. This is an impressive as
F.E.A.R. is an acid test for gaming cards.

Bottom Line: It is worth spending a bit higher for this card as it
performs better than some mid-range cards.
