I played the Bioshock demo earlier- it's the best looking game I've played on my system, I think they squeezed a lot of performance for the visuals, a very well optimised engine!
very nice to hear a 7600 gt can fair its own in games, now i know my 512mb 8600 gts will do me just fine tonite!!! .... i'll be testin it out on some cs:s and dark messiah hopefully being 1680x1050 won't make too much a difference

Well, I just got back I bought the eVGA 8600GT, I'm gonna OC it myself... RUNS BIOSHOCK NICELY!!! I'm getting 20-40 FPS in game, and only slow down was when my whole screen was like fog... I paid 120$ and I have a 20$ mail in rebate.. Card is great very quiet too and I can't wait to OC.... So far very excited... as always with eVGA!! I'm gonna install other games... I'll keep posted.

lol ya... sucks that i did, and i really regret it now.. cuz the instant i sold it.. i was gonna keep the money to save for the next build.. but alot of things came up... and i had to give the money up.... ...... and i ended up on a 700mhz celeron for a while.... and now a 3800x2.. that doesnt get the job done for me.....

but anyway... i may end up selling this build for a few hundreds.. (without case) but i dunno, maybe i want 2 compys....

but imma probably splooge out for an 8800 ultra/gtx in the near future.... i'm still deciding weather to get an e6700 or q6600... but i'll probably have my decision by next friday

Just be aware with the Bioshock demo that some people are having some issues with their anti-virus software reading the copyright protection stuff as trojans. Anyone have any more information on this?....

It is hard to keep up with your current build and future plans. You were debating a 8800gtx before I left for a while, then I stopped by again and you were going to build a fx75 based or or something. Now you have a budget build.
