    Galaxy go silent and drop 7600 GS onto AGP

    Following on from recent news that Galaxy were preparing a same-board dual 7600 GT SKU, news filters in about a few more products from the growing NVIDIA AIB partner. The first two are completely passive versions of 7300 GT and 7600 GS, using Arctic Cooling sinks.

    I'd love the price of the 7600GS, and opinions if it would extend the life of my current PC just that little bit more
    (Shuttle 95G/FX55Sandy/2Gb[2-3-3-8]/6800GT[AGP]).

    Obviously im not expecting fantastic framerate increases, just a way of adding the features of the PCIE cards to the older AGP interface.

    On the price front, I've just got word that NVIDIA's 7600 GS will be priced around US$159 to US$199.
