Default NVIDIA Mid Range 8600 GT vs 7600 GT Performance Comparison

Only a few weeks ago we compared the new 8500 GT to the cheaper and older 7300 GT video card and found the new NVIDIA budget card to be average at best. This week we compare the mid range offering, a Sparkle 8600 GT 256Mb which can be found at ~100 in stores, to a ~100 XFX 7600 GT 256Mb which comes with higher clock speeds. To round up the comparison we threw in a factory overclocked Calibre 8600 GT with 512Mb. Let's see if the new cards can beat the revived price/performance champ.

Credit = price/performance
I never give credit at a single level

I have overlooked the X1950 Pro it seems, it's now also at price ~€100 and offers out of the box performance slightly higher than the 8600 GT

Yes, but slightly lower power consumption and better drivers.

Both of them are a good deal though.
