Um, not to be rude but you all kind of ended up bickering instead of helping me and thats what these forums are about... aren't they? Anyway I switched to the 8600 and don't notice much of a difference but I'm not really a hard core gamer anymore, so the fact that its quieter is enough for me to stick with it.

i think we kinda answered your question, just threw it in briefly before we began to flame each other...

but yeah, what you could do is sell both cards and get a better card, or just keep the 8600 and that should be fine for you if you aren't a hardcore gamer.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
