Why are you limiting yourself with an 8 series when those lower 8 series won't even play any DX10 games well at all...I mean it's just a waste I think. The 8600GT for only 100-115 is a good deal but if you have 150 to spend at least get something like a 7900GS, or even an 8600GTS. The GT is NOT meant for real DX10 gaming and you will never get off bare minimum low graphics with one in DX10.
