What do you think of your 8600gt? Is it able to play games on mid settings at a reasonable speed? It's a fairly cheap card for about £50 and is passively cooled. The 3850 looks better but then I'll have to get the accelero cooler aswell so that will cost about £75 altogether. I would like to buy either a cheap card now which I could upgrade later on or buy a decent card now which will be fairly future proof.

My 8600GT is OC'd out of the box, but I've actually gotten it up to 680MHz core and 1900MHz memory. It runs GRID at 1152x864 with 4X AA at around 40 FPS average. I like it a lot, especially since I got it from gibsonnova here on OCN for $45!

I just got my Accelero S1 today and I am VERY impressed. This thing keeps my card at 55 C under load in ATItool whereas my previous stock cooler only kept it at 66 C under load! The Accelero doesn't even need a fan and it dropped my temps 10 degrees!

wow, thats a huge difference. I'm still undecided though on which card to get. I'm getting a 22" monitor aswell so will the 8600gt still play games at this resolution?
