..uhh did you catch this->

gddr4 offers no performance gains on a 128bit bus.

If the cards are close in specs, I would go for the ATi, as mentioned, 65nm FTW..little less power, better OC potential..and from my experience, ATi gpu's are just a little 'stronger' when all of the eye candy is turned on.

Q 4 u-> are the 2600's Crossfire capable?

While it is true that the HD2600XT looks better on paper (higher core clock, GDDR4, etc.), the 8600GTS still outperforms it:

Just because HD2600XT have GDDR4 memory does not meant that it is good performer........

Just look at those reviews

8600GTS outperforms HD2600XT (GDDR4 version) by far, even 8600GT beats HD2600XT in many cases.

I think the reason why 8600GTS outperforms HD2600XT is because it has much higher texture fill rate. 8600GTS has 16 TMU, HD2600XT has only 8
