Not really...It is DX10 ready though. But if you want DX10, you should really, go for the 8800 series, because I don't think the 8600GT will handle the DX10 as well. An 8600GT is like a 7600GT with DX10 capability.

but the thing is that the 8800s are the best dx9 cards out as well...

As for memory....G. Skill, Crucial, Geil...there are lots.
