My buddy runs it on a 7950GTX with no problems at all. I haven't picked it up yet, the demo sucked so I'm reluctant to spend 50$ on a game that might suck.

consider the 8800 GTS which is 250 after MIR, that card is LIGHT YEARS beyond an 8600. I tell everyone this...

Try to get 8800GTS 320MB because it is way much faster than 8600GTS

Newegg.com - XFX PVT80GGHF4 GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported HDCP Video Card - Retail

And it is only $250 after MIR

Kind of amused how the GTS 320 and GTS 640 are basically the same.

That's why we suggest the 320MB like always! 1% performance increase doesn't even show up in those BioShock statistics.
