I mean serious, Im an diehard ATI fan myself, I will never buy the 8600, In fact im saving for their new 3870, but to be honest the 8600 is NOT a bad card.
There are so many things wrong with what you just said.
1) Tomshardware is not just some random review site that no one has ever heard of...
In fact, SHOW me these "REVIEWS by EXPERTS" where the 8600 has an edge on the x1950
2) Sure you can play games in DX10 at full settings, but it will be a slideshow...
3) I'm not just saying it sucks because I'm "so pro ATI". I've had tons of nvidia cards in the past including an 8800GTS. I'm saying it sucks because the card has a 128bit memory interface which severely cripples gaming potential.
4) The 8600 may not be a bad card for playing older games like Quake 4 and WoW, but if you plan to do any dx10 gaming or want to max modern games out then you are sadly mistaken.
