...you asked a question and then basically ignored all the answers that were given.

The 8600GT is ****e.

stock vs stock:

8600GTS >= x1950pro > 7900GS >7600GT > 8600GT

the 8600GT won't handle bioshock at your resolution.

At stock, the X1950PRO is more powerful, but it can't overclock much. The 7900GS on the other hand, can overclock really well, from what I heard, and will beat the X1950PRO stock.
