Of course the 8800s can play Crysis. The GTS and GTX are the most powerful cards, right now.

It's hard to say if they will max them...as they were created a year before the game would be released. Still they will play them well nonetheless but max its not for sure.

XFX 8600 GT 256MB with 620MHZ core, 1600MHZ mem, for $169.99
Newegg.com - XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail

The only difference between that and the 8600 GTS, is the GTS has a 55MHZ faster core speed.

It will have about the same performance as a 7900 GS, but it has DirectX 10

GEEZ! Why post a thread that was posted 1,000 times before!!!!? Look and the thread a the top of these topics. There's one (probably first one) labeled Video card rankings. It starts with the 8800 GTX and works it's way down. Start near the top and price them until they get in your range. Best one for you dollar amount = sold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It doesn't include 8600 or 8500 series cards.

um Dx10 already came out since Vista came out.

8800 is one of the most top of the line videocards, of course it will be able to play it.

of course though the 8500 is a budget card, its just gonna replace the budget cards of right now (6800, 7300)

8600 though its just pretty much a 7900 with dx10 support, y get the direct x 9 version?

The 8600GT is really not as fast as a 7900GS though...especially when both are overclocked.

I would just get a 7900GS or an X1950PRO

XFX's 620MHZ one is.

Plus, 8600's can be voltmodded, and overclocked over 900MHZ

I don't think you understand. Lower ranked cards can be higher ranked cards through overclocking and volt modding

and thats exactly what I'm looking for, the best bang for my buck. I figured that was apparent in my first few posts. Guess not ..

XFX also has a 600mhz 7900GS and the 7900GS can be voltmodded and go past 750mhz as well...
