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

Price. Dx10 imo is useless if its a from budget card. If its a Dx10 game it's not going to be a mediocre made game, its going to be next-gen. Whats the point if I buy a Dx10 card thats budget, and by the time a Dx10 game finally comes out, im unable to play it?

I hope my tone doesn't sound rude or offending, because that is not my intention. Just FYI
