Actually from the reviews I've read, the 8600 GTs (even the non-overclocked ones) have been benchmarked and avged better fps. I just got my Gigabyte 8600GT Turbo Force Edition and it runs the Crysis demo w/ about 20-30 fps on medium with a 1280x1024 res. and for CoD4, I get about 40-80 fps on "Normal" settings and 1024x768 res. I haven't been playing games as much lately as I used too, so I didn't go for the best card, just enough to get very acceptable framerates. My only problem is that my processor basically is eaten by Crysis and my sound lags...idk why.

Just a note for future motherboards, don't get ECS boards. They're not very good for overclocking.

I've actually only got an 8500 GT, so don't feel bad.

Mine runs Crysis 1024 * 768 med/high on my 8600GT OCed to 626/1726. Cod4 all high with a couple tweaks in the console at 1024 * 768. Good card going to upgrade later though had it for a year.
