7900gs, but to be honest, I wouldn't want to live with either of them for four to five years.

i didnt actually mean exactly 4-5 years
i mean use them for a long time
but one Q.

that 8600 gt has dx10 and looks something good (the gfx)
but that 7900 gs has dx9c and looks kinda crap

so i am a little scared that it'll screw up less than a year or so.

I wouldn't pay attention to how the PCB or the cooler looks :\

Well, even though it has Dx10, it's slower than the 7900gs.

The problem with the 8600GT, is that it's not a worthy card to be playing DX10 with. So the 7900GS is better.

The 7900GS still has some years. It can play DX10 games reasonably, such as Bioshock.
