As we draw close to the launch of the new GeForce 8600 and 8500 series from nVidia next week, we will likely see users getting rid of their current mid-range graphics cards and upgrading. When you got your 7600GT, you said to yourself, "I will get a second one eventually for SLI, when I can afford it". Well, this might be the perfect time to pick up some very capable DX9 graphics cards with a reduced price tag to make way for the new upcoming models.
We have with us today the GeForce 7600GT Fatal1ty from XFX (the version clocked at 650MHz core as opposed to the cheaper 560MHz) which is a bit fancier when compared to our standard run of the mill 7600GT. We're going to have a look at exactly what the cards are capable of when running in SLI but also by itself.
Being a special hyped up version bearing the Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel branding, they are quite a lot more expensive than regular reference style 7600GT's but it'll be interesting to see what type of extra performance and features we see by spending some more cash.
We will also crank up the AA and AF and try some overclocking before we sum it all up. Let's continue on and examine if it's really worth spending the extra dollars on a graphics card. At least in the United States, it's about $50 USD or roughly 30% more expensive than the regular model from XFX but in Australia, it is much more expensive.
Let's get started and see exactly what we have here!
