The 8600 will just give not the best performance. Is there anyway to wait and get 8800gts 640? That would just work amazing on your rig.. Especially if you have a good CPU and OC it..

If it's your sig rig then you may as well get 8600 as the 88 would probably be bottlenecked

imo i would save a little more cash and get the 8800GTS 320mb at least and it would do just fine w/ res. of 1680x1050, in Lost Planet dx10 i get 42 fps with all settings maxed out on the snow level and 55fps on the cave. but if its a have to right now then go for the 8600, and if ya go with the 8800 then when you get a new cpu/mb you'll be able to really feel a step-up w/ the 8800GTS

I'd get the X1950GT anyday. it will outperform an 8600GTS. Sure it wont have DX10. But being reasonable. By the time DX10 games become mainstream, theres no chance in hell the 8600GT is going to play it in DX10 rendering mode comfortably, so you'll resort to DX9 rendering mode anyway. But even then if you had got the DX9 card in the first place it would play them alot better, as its more powerful than the 8600GT.

Yeah I said same thing but look at his system specs (processor and all) it's not the newest and an 8800 would be somewhat bottlenecked so best go with something that your sig fits snuggly.

At that resolution, you'd be shooting yourself in the foot for not getting a 8800GTS 640mb. Find a way to get the extra $$.. ;p

yes it would be, but theres a thread about bottlenecking and why it doesnt matter. it only matters for benchmarking. in real games bottlenecking means nowt
