Due to drivers though the 7600gt will get a higher FPS on most every game, over the 8600gts though.
And to answer your Q- The X1950XT would clean house with any 8600 card. Your comparing a 256bit card to a 128bit card...plus the ATi has got shader performance in the bag.
8600's are ghey!
I call you a moron, im an 8600 user, well ex user, its a great card and its fast as ****.

I chose the x1950pro 256mb over the 8600GT....and I'm very happy with my decision.
I score 4700 with everything at stock in 3dmark06, with Vista Ultimate.
im sorry at stock with an 8600GT, 2gb of DDR2 533, and an X2 3800 i get 5100
