Nvidia's "7" family of graphic cards offers the right solution no matter what your needs. The 7600GS is designed for the gamer with high demands who doesn't want high prices. The 7600 fully supports Microsoft's DirectX 9.0 protocols and beyond.

The built-in CineFX 4.0 Engine and UltraShadow II technology are accompanied by its support for other advanced features which let the 7600 deliver cinema-quality graphics. It’s OpenGL 2.0 compliant – the standard for high performance graphics.

The 7600 delivers a max resolution of 2560 x 1600 and the video can be output via the onboard S-Video, HDTV, or Composite outputs.

Its integrated dual 400MHz RAMDACs let you connect to connect a pair of displays to speed up your workflow – or spread out your gameplay. Its 400MHz core clock keeps things humming along – shouldering the load of video processing so your CPU doesn't have to. The onboard fan helps with airflow within the case while cooling the card.

eVGA 7600 GS AGP 4x/8x

Pros: I've had 2 of these cards (liquid cooled) since early '05... they are 'still' running in my two Abit NF7-S Rev.2.0 boards and have done me well, continuously. Never had one problem with them and they overclock pretty good for their era. Omega drivers keep them at peak performance (480 cc - 810 mc) along with the Black MantaRay BIOS flash for the boards. Pretty great having two Athlon 3000 (liquid cooled) processors continuously running at 2.58GHz for nearly 10 yrs. without fail.

Thanks eVGA... hope you guys straighten up the mess with Guru3D.com...

Cons: Fan and ram cooling was always a downfall. I guess that's why the Aftermarket Cooling industry has flourished- and always will. Put your minds and money into the Entire Card design... 'atye???

Other Thoughts: After the Coolbits and Guru3D issue, I stopped buying eVGA products/components.

EVGA USES SHODDY PARTS!

Pros: Cheap AGP card at the time...

Cons: Cheaply made with shoddy capacitors! (most of which are now bulging or popped)

Other Thoughts: I said never again to ABIT after their capacitor fiasco, and now say the same for EVGA!

Pros: Worked great until it died. Was not overclocked.

Cons: Dead after 1.6 years. Popped caps.

Other Thoughts: Was a good little card. had to set mobo to slowest speeds for ram or it wouldn't let the system post. MSI KT600 mobo, AMD 2800 1.5g ram.

Works fine, good performance for the price at the time

Pros: Needed an AGP card for my computer, didn't want to spend a lot of money. Works fine, when my old computer died, I put the card in my son's computer. He does more gaming than me, and it worked fine for him too.

Cons: PCI-e x16 2.0 9600GT cards are now available for a few dollars more, if you aren't stuck with an old system that uses an AGP slot! I can't really deduct any points from the rating for that.

Don't Buy!

Pros: Looks good, spec wise

Cons: This card lasted only 2 minutes before the picture went out. It became blocky and distorded. I have used many nVidia cards of the 6xxx and 5xxx series, and never had a problem before.

Cons: Its only weak compared to todays technology

Other Thoughts: Its the best option for upgrading your aniquated AGP mobo

Locks up Computer

Pros: It does work fine as long as you don't need to use 3D Accelerated apps.

Cons: This board was bought specifically so that all the layers in WoW would show up, replacing an older card that worked but some things didn't appear in the scenes. It installed fine and appeared to work with various apps, but then we tried it on WoW. As soon as we went past the opening screen, the whole computer froze and then rebooted. Got an RMA on this and sent it back. NewEgg promptly sent another one. Put it in, same lockup problem. I then ordered a different model from Newegg with same NVidia chipset and it has worked fine for almost a year. I put this card in another workstation that wasn't for gaming. It worked fine, until I tried to use Google Earth. Then it froze and rebooted. Finally I put it on my Linux workstation and used the nvidia driver. Worked fine, even with Google Earth, but when I fired up Thunderbird, it would randomly lock up the whole machine. Finally I called it quits. It's a waste of money sending it back twice. I salvaged the fan and put the board in the trash.

Other Thoughts: I am happy that some people aren't having problems with this board, but since I sent the first one back and the second one has the same serious problem of system lockup, which is repeatable on three machines and with different OSes, I have to conclude that there is a design flaw with the board. It's not NVidia's fault because a similar 7600 card from another vendor works fine. My recommendation: don't buy this particular card. There is a design flaw somewhere in it. Shop around. NewEgg has lots to choose from.
