7600 is better, performance wise,  (at least, the 600 series of any
Nvidia line, be it 6600, 7600, or 8600, is the bare minimum for any 3d
gaming.  200 series if office/workstation use, 800 is performance card,
and 900 Enthusiast.  the thousand series (ie, 6000, 7000, 8000, etc) is
the generation of card.  In theory the larger the number the better.  In
historical practice, the 600 series of the last generation will be
better for gaming than the 200 of the new.
