DX9 will be prevelant for awhile and your 8600GT as of now will be run over in DX10 mode and when these native DX10 games come out there will probaly be better DX10 video cards. I am just saying this beacause no computer is future proof. I just feel that a 7950GT would serve you better in the short and longer term while DX9 is still the main render being used.

If your not going to the 590 chip set, the Biostar 550 or 7050 chip set will OCwell... both can take the 3600+ to 3G and some slightly past. I'm still not to impressed with most peoples results with the 570... it's not a strong OCer IMHO!

i'd drop to a x2 3600+ brisbane (save $100) and spend the $100 to upgrade to a 8800 gts 320

They hear that it's a DX10 compatible card and they go crazy over it even though it's performance is relatively low compared to other cards in the same price range.

Anyways, if you want a DX10 card then get the AMD 3600+ Brisbane with TForce-550 to save a few bucks and buy the 8800GTS 320. I will make some adjustments to the build I posted yesterday.

Drop to brisbane 3600 X2... and Tforce550 as well, as others have stated.
Also would suggest a Big Typhoon over that Ninja.
I've seen some very dissappointing results with ninjas.

for around $100 its a good budget card, better than a 7600 gt


I'd drop the coolmax psu and get a Xclio 500 watt good power for $50
