I have a XFX 8600 GT XXX, and I run GRAW 2, FEAR, and Dark Massiah completely maxed out without a single hitch. It is also about 120 bucks on Newegg, and out benchmarks any 7900 or 8600 on the market. Also easily overclockable to 8800 specs. I would go for the XFX 8600 XXX just to hold you over until the "real" Dx10 cards come out and are affordable.... yet I am a newbie on his first custom comp, so don't flame me too much, ATI fanbois, lol. I am just saying from personal experience that I have played every game I own maxed out with great and EASILY playable frame-rates using a single 8600 XXX. DOOO IIIIT!

Come on fan boys stop ranting over over it, theres a card from either side that will fit into someones budget. We're here to get the best performance out of what we buy, not to be loyal to a company who only gives us good parts for our money.

Hahahaha. Thats my laugh of the day. Maxed at a resolution of 800x600? The 8600 is not overclockable to 8800 specs, its physically impossible.
