Hot on the heels of our 7600GT review, NVIDIA has announced the latest in its GeForce 7-series - the GeForce 7600 GS.

Clocked a little slower than the GeForce 7600 GT, it sports 12 pipelines and comes as standard with 256MB of memory.

XFX was the first board partner with an email in our inbox this afternoon, and they make a pretty good case for buying their board - it's passive!

We complained about the reference 7600 cooler in our review, and its good to see that XFX is gearing up to bring mid-range gaming an added dimension - silence.

XFX will have boards in standard and Extreme ranges, with clocks at 400/800 and 500/900 respectively. With these decent clock speeds, you can expect them to have no problems handling high definition H.264 decoding with NVIDIA's PureVideo drivers too.

The cards are expected to come in at around $150 / €150 / £120, and you should be able to pick them up right away from all the usual suspects.

However, with 7600 GT products already crashing down towards £125 in some UK stores, the 7600 could sneak in just above the £100 mark, which would make it pretty awesome value.

Also announced is the GeForce 7300 LE, which will be a budget board for those looking to save their pennies. The LE is a variant on the standard GeForce 7300 with Turbocache.
