    Graphics Card Ranges

    I am looking for a Graphics Card and with what I can afford is very little and I can just about afford a XFX 7600GT but there are 2 editions to to choose from.

    XFX 7600 GT XXX Edition 154.98 - $270.01(USD) - $310.20(CAD)
    Dual Link DVI - Supporting digital output up to 2560x1600
    Yes
    Clock rate
    590 MHz
    Memory Clock
    1.5 GHz
    Chipset
    7600 GT
    Memory
    256 MB
    Bus Type
    PCI-E
    Memory Type
    DDR3
    Memory Bus
    128 Bit
    Highlighted Features
    Dual DVI Out , HDTV ready , SLI ready

    XFX 7600 GT Extreme Edition 161.98 - $282.28(USD) - $324.28(CAD)
    Dual Link DVI - Supporting digital output up to 2560x1600
    Yes
    Clock rate
    580 MHz
    Memory Clock
    1.5 GHz
    Chipset
    7600 GT
    Memory
    256 MB
    Bus Type
    PCI-E
    Memory Type
    DDR3
    Memory Bus
    128 Bit
    Highlighted Features

    I know very little about them and I can't see the difference in paying about 10 more in the XXX and the Extreme version.
    I ain't got a signature anymore, someone stole it and I want it back.

    yea I see that too but something isn't adding up if the XXX is cheaper??


    I would think something else makes the Extreme better than just that 10mhz difference which you can easily adjust in coolbits

    yeah the price difference for an extra 10mhz doesn't sound like a good deal

    Actually the XXX edition has faster memory, 1.6 GHz vs. 1.5 GHz on the extreme edition plus a 10MHz faster core over the extreme edition.

    You can view all the available 7600 GT models available from XFX here - http://www.xfxforce.com/web/product/...oductId=186026

    The XXX Edition is faster.
