So I've recently built a machine that I'm going to use to play games like CS and hopefully Starcraft 2 when it finally comes out.
Searching around on NewEgg.com I noticed that the nVidia 8600GTS
seems to have a faster Core clock speed than the 8800GTS
Also, I've noticed that the customer reviews for the 8600 say to hold out for the 8800. While at the same time the 8800 reviews say nothing but the fact that its a huge card and runs hotter than most other cards.
So I'm wondering why I would throw another 100$+ down on a graphics card that seems to not only be slower, but also take up more room in my pc and run hotter??
