Default Buy me the first 8600GTS hehe!!

MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-HD-OC GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB PCI Express Video Card w/Dual DVI Retail at ZipZoomfly

Someone buy it and bench it......

only 32 unified shader though....that stacks up with the performance of todays 7900 series cards...but has dx10...not bad for 190$

EDIT** ITS OUT TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

ASUS announced their 8600 GTS today as well.

The official release isn't until tomorrow, I think.

wow...for $190, the 8600GTS, will have the same performance as a 7900GTX. I don't know, I got that from wiki.

SLIed and proberly only as good a 8800GTS?
I'm just guessing so don't start flaming.

For my future comp its either this videocard or x2900GTO wenever it comes out anyway. I don't see the need to pay half the comp's money on just the videocard.

Hardware Analysis - Nvidia's 8600GTS and GT, DirectX 10 midrange madness

my bad 70% of 8800GTS and half the price. should be good for your money.

haha i read the 8500GT, 128-bit memory controler. 8500GT = 7300GT with Dirextx 10 support, should be decent since it is only $100.

8600GTS performs on par with 7900GT

Both 7950GT and 7900GTX outperforms 8600GTS
