The 7900GS is a more powerful card, than the 8600GT. If you're thinking the 8600GT is better because it is DX10 compatible, it's not, because it's not really worth playing DX10 games with a weak DX10 card.

If your on a budget and you want DX 10, just wait for 8700gt.

The GT is usually an overclocked GS, with a little more specs added. If you're planning on gaming, the 8400GS isn't any good.

High end are the 8800 series (DX 10)
Med( 7600,8600,7900gs)


The 7900gs,gt,etx are pretty good but they do not support dx10.

If your planning on wanting to play games with dx 10, you should go for the 8800 series. If you have a budget, wait for the 8700 series to come out. Im guessing they will be equivalent to the 7900 series.

I dont know any comparison with ati cards.

I've owned a 7600gt and 7900 gs, and currently with the 8800gts.

No it's not, because the X1950PRO is an ATI card, while the 8800GTX is an Nvidia card.
