You might find this review useful.....choose between the X1800 or 7600GT.

Don't even think about the has never received good reviews and is nowhere near as fast as the other two.And don't be fooled by the 512MB video memory.....none of the three cards you mention are powerful enough to need more than 256MB video memory.

Plus even now there are only a handfull of games that can make use of more than 256MB.....and they are F.E.A.R. and games on the DOOM3 engine.

I have always got on better with Nvidia cards than ATI, so of the three I'd go for the 7600GT. I think you'd be impressed with it for the type of games you mention.

I think i will go for 256 mb 7600GT

Quote from a very recent Bit-Tech review

"Our feelings about the Radeon X1800GTO would change somewhat if the price was more competitive and the cooler was considerably better. For now though, the GeForce 7600 GT gets our recommendation in the mid range"
