You can have a 7600 GS/GT (nearly) anywhere. Just google on the
internet. However, if I were you, I would not go for this one, but
choose a passively cooled model instead, i.e. a Geforce board that does
not have a moving fan.
You will surely love to hear the difference. ;-)))
Eberhard, using a silent 7600 GT and it's great to not hear anything
