You could probably run every game except Crysis very well. I *think* the 8600GTS is as good if not better than my x1950pro. I run every game I have (every source game, WoW, BF2142) at max settings @ 1680x1050. I do have to cut down the AA and AF on some of the newer Source games like Portal though. But since your running a lower res, you could probably turn them up a little.

Stacker 830 - e6600 @ 3.6ghz - Eva 9800GTX+
X-Fi Xtrememusic - 4GB OCZ SLI 1066
Sceptre 20.1" - Logitech Z5500 - Gigabyte DS3 965p

yeah with a 19" widescreen you should be able to handle pretty much anything with max settings, aside from crysis. my 7900gs at 1680x1050 handles all source games with max settings no AA, fps doesn't ever really drop below ~35. x1950pro>7900gs>8600gts, but they're still all fairly close.

bigy, thats sweet im just interested in it because im planning to use a phenom in my next build and was hopping that they've worked out their bugs and the general performance is up to par.


My gaming rig:
ASUS P6T | i7-920 D0 @ 4.0GHZ - 1.25v w/ H50
GTX 460/768MB (750/1500/2000) | 12GB Corsair DDR3-1600 @ (8-8-8-24)
2 x PS-100 32GB SSD Raid 0 | 4 x WD 750GB Raid 5 | Corsair 620HX
Asus 21.6" LCD (1080p) | LG 32" TV (1080p)
Logitech G15 | Logitech MX518 | Logitech MX1100 | Razer Mamba
