DX10 doesn't run in XP.

And I'd pick the 8600GTS.

DX10 doesnt run on XP (yet?)
DX10 CARDS however, do, as long as they also support DX9.
get the GTS
post #4 of 48
Get the GTS as it is great for overclocking if you get aftermarket cooling and do a volt mod,But at stock speeds it is still a great card.it beats all of nvidia DX9 card now,

P.S. it also beat a 7900GTX my dad has one in his old dell and we play BF2142,WOW,BF2,and C%C3 togethere and i get better FPS in all of then by atleast +20.

GTS would be best choice. It'll funcion properly, but without DX10.

I like my new 8600GT. Its giving me a bit better feelings then the 7600 it replaced. But I wishes they had had the GTS at computex for sale.

I have been pricing the 8600GTS. So far I am finding $174.99-$224.99 and the Core ranging from 675Mhz to 730Mhz.

XFX seems to have the better cards. I am liking this one here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150226

They need to make a 320Mb or a 512Mb,that would be nice. Then we would see $250-$320 price range I would guess.

Save a little more money and just get an 8800GTS 320/640 mb card. It will outperform the 8600 buy quite a bit and that means it will last you longer.
