    There's no 7600 (non GT). It is called 7600GS.

    1. Yes it's worth buying over the 6600GT if the price difference is minor.

    2. 7600GS is Rs. 8,000 approx and 7600GT is Rs. 12,000 approx.

    k guys...im back for a few last minute advice on my upgrade...

    1.there are 2 versions of the asus boards with onboard Geforce6 for the athlon 64 namely "A8N-VM CSM/NBP" and "A8N-VM CSM"...my vendor says only the latter is availbale here in market..as far i can see the only difference between the two is with the onboard graphics version...

    http://in.asus.com/products2.aspx?l1=3&l2=15

    A8N-VM CSM/NBP - NVIDIA® GeForce 6150B + nForce 430
    A8N-VM CSM - NVIDIA GeForce 6150 + nForce 430

    will that B thing make that much of a difference..???one more thing me gonna go for the XFX Geforce 7600GS 256MB...so even if there is any diff in the quality of onboard graphics bt the 2 boards..does'nt really matter right...????

    2.to wat extent does what onboard graphics u have really matter when ur gonna be installing a graphics card...like for eg,board A,board B(both with similar FSB,RAM etc etc but mobo B inferior to mobo A with onboard graphics..)

    now lets assume v installin same graphics on both the board..how wud u compare their performance...will the higher onboard graphics on board A help boost its performance...??

    3.is there anythin called SATA2 interface for seagate HDD's...?and i guess do these mobos support it...

    4.from the specs of the board,im not exactly able to figure out how many IDE ports r there...i already got a 40B hdd,combo drive,cd-drive..plannin to go for a 160GB SATA drive and a DVD writer...so curious to know if i can connect all of them..

    thanks..!
