you should think about going with the X1950XT instead of the 8600gts since they're priced the similar. - SAPPHIRE 100186L Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail

AnandTech has a review comparing the 8600gt/gts cards to a handful of other cards, one being the X1900XT (X1950XT being the higher-end version), which outperforms both the 8600's.
