double performance of an 8600gt isn't really a big deal if you think about it.. its like an 8800gt or hd3870, but then again imagine the 9800gtx

And? I happened to have received a newegg gift certificate for christmas. So thanks for trying to prove me wrong by providing one (false) example. Nice job buddy. And are we really going to get into a debate over whether 60 dollars is a lot of money?

Secondly, the the point was saving money over time... not saving money by buying a lower end card. Furthermore, yes I did feel that buying this card (with my gift certificate) was worth the extra money because of the added cooling which lets me overclock it to 775 Mhz which is out of reach for the GT.
