    Hi guys recently bought a 7600gt 256mb pci-e card, installed ok, have been running all my games to the maximum possible settings with no problems at all (fifa07 and BF2142).
    However in the properties the computer is regodnising it as a 7650GS ? I am a bit confused, everything is working fine just wondered why it is being picked up as that? I have installed the latest nvidia 7 series drivers from their site.

    any ideas?

    went home at lunch time and took the card out of the pc, the number on the card does indeed prove it is a 7600GT, no idea still why windows thinks its a 7650gs tgough, still all games are working at maximum setting and are smooth :) still if anyone has any ideas it would satisfy my curiousity.
