Go with the S96J. It's a much better deal.
First of all, the video card does perform better than the 7600 (512mbs).. And it's also much more future proof than the nvidia series rite now. A few months ago when the DX10 drivers were released for professionals and game developers, they all agreed that the ATi X1000 series was visibly much better than the Nvidia Geforce 7 series for one pretty big reason. The ATi X1000 series has some texture shaders required for DX10. So when DX10 games come out, the ATi card will show it's true potential
