In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT.

The 7600 GS was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the 7600 GS is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6600 GT.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The 7600 GS has 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6600 GT, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 7600 GS also has superior memory performance overall.

The 7600 GS has 10.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6600 GT, which means that the memory performance of the 7600 GS is slightly better than the GeForce 6600 GT.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the 7600 GS is 5 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the 7600 GS performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition requires 27 Watts to run and the GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the 7600 GS. The GeForce 6600 GT requires 21 Watts more than the 7600 GS to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 6600 GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the 7600 GS.
