I gotta agree with Vernong1992 whats the point of having a dx-10 card if it cant play the games. If he really wants dx-10 he should save up for a while longer so he can get an 8800gts or he can just get the ATI 1950 XT and oc it to XTX settings. I mean even some people that have an 8800 less the gtx plan on upgrading when DX-10 goes mainstream because not even that card will pawn dx-10 games. by that point and time.

8600GTS isn't worth it, someone said another post that its the DX10 equivilent of a 7300.
