the 8600 surely can NOT run everything you throw at it lol...

In fact it probably can't run anything you throw at it!

How bout we let him buy the 8600, and he can tell us that it sucks for himself? Sometimes people gotta learn the hard way....

Im definately going with the HD3850, i hope there is a price drop on them soon too.
maybe he got the pic?
