what is the point in having DX10 capabilities in a card this weak, which clearly will not be able to take advantage of them, so pointless...

once they have designed the architecture for DX10 GPUs, they don't loose money by manufacturing simple versions of the same core, so they might as well just do it.

This would be a great HTPC card if it had a HDMI port. But it doesn't... Sigh

lol wut with like pixel doubling dx8 shaders on low @ 800x640 :P

well i think since its the next gen, this should be on par or maybe a tad better the the best 7300 card (is it GT?)

8600GTS - easily better than 7600gt
8600gt - just better than the 7600gt
8500gt - better than the 7600gs
8400gs - same as 7300gt/gs

For your information, 8500GT is not better than 7600GS

I saw benchmark between 8500GT and 7600GS, and 7600GS performed better in the majority of benchmarks. I don't remember that website for the benchmark but you can google it.

This is more correct

8500GT - faster than 7300GT
8400GS - faster than 7300GS

right now its pointless but in a year or so DX9 cards will be obsolete and all games will be DX10. The budget and mainstream DX10 cards seem to be releasing a little too early to make an impact on the market.
