I'm not to sure as the source that I follow has not added the 8500GT yet. I've heard it was actually a bit WEAKER than the 7300GT even though..

actually my little brother is running a geforce2gts and it beats all the gefore4mx series so why is it so low? well at least the mx4XXX with heatsinks instead of fans. when he tried running some games on mx4400 it just froze and with geforce2gts he played some games at max~medium settings, not to mention it runs rise of legends

I disagree

8600GTS performs on par with X1950pro, but since 8600GTS is DX10 then I would put it above X1950pro

Why would you put 8600GT under 7800GT !!! In shader-intensive games like oblivion, 8600GT was performing better than 7900GS, and even better than X1950pro, so I don't think that 7800GT can even compete with 8600GT. 8600GT should be at least above 7800GT

In depends on which Geforce 4MX you are talking about ?

Geforce 2 GTS may be able to beat MX420, MX4000 or MX440SE, but it can't beat MX440 or MX460

Remember that MX440SE has 64bit memory interface. MX440 (not SE) have 128bit memory interface.

The 8600GTS does perform on par but still is beat in just about every game. The fact that it is DX10 doesn't matter right now as there are no DX10 games.

The GT just becuase it has a nice shader and DX10 doesn't mean it's overall that powerful. The 128-bit memory bus limits both of the 8600 cards from performing very well with any AA or AF on. only in a few games do the 8600GT perform well and those are the shader intensive, but right now about 95% of the games the 7900GS is better than it which is basically just a beefed up 7800GT.

This is why at least for NOW those ratings are correct.

The other GPU makers just got beat out of the market...the Geforce 2 series I believe knocked out one of them becuase it was so powerful at the time.

Does it take into consideration value? ($) If not then perhaps someone should make a new list that does...
