    Default Evga 7600gt Or Xfx 7600gt?

    I'm still studying up on some graphics cards and I am seeing the EVGA 7600GT high clocks at 600 and costs $199 after rebate and there medium 7600GT that clocks in at 580 is $164 after rebate.
    XFX 7600GT High clocks at 590 but has more memory and costs $159 after rebate here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150140
    This sounds like a good deal to me. Which would you all suggest? IS XFX better for the lower price? Or is Evga better?

    It's the same core, so buy the cheaper brand and overclock.

    EVGA is one of the best brands IMO, but for $40 less I'd take the XFX.

    I use Mushkin XP4000 DDR500 with mine. It can be found fairly cheap Example: 2GB for $150AR.

    I've got my 3700+ running at 2625mhz (4200+ speed, 250x10.5) on air...stock cooling fan at that. My CPU temp doesn't get over 48*C (according to speed fan) while under load with something like FEAR, BF2 or COD2.

    I have a BFG 6800GTOC running in my second "beater" PC (it's my everyday desktop). Got it running at 385mhz core and 1.1ghz mem. BUT, I haven't run a game on that machine since I don't know when, so it is kindof being wasted in there. Card isn't really worth much nowadays so I just leave it......

    Maybe I'll move it over to my 5 year olds computer who is running a 9800Pro on a 2.4ghz Skt 478 P4, and give the 9800Pro to my 4 year olds who is running a Ti4400 on a SKT A Athlon 2100+, and then move the 4400 over to my "everday desktop", since it's not used for gaming anyway.
