I was trying to go under $100. Not to mention that i have a Vanilla 6800 right now. I am not looking for the best card i was just looking for something mid-range.

You guys dont have to use it. So dont complain about it.

It has been a great card. It has allowed me to do many things that my old ATi card couldn't do. But it has seen its day. Right now with nothing running i can get only a max of 10 FPS on Doom 3. I know i got more than that before. It stutters so bad. So i know that the 5 years of OC'ing has finally killed it.

At most i play some Doom 3, CS:S, UT2004, and FEAR. Maybe some Halo:Combat Evolved if i feel the need. Then there is my Emulators. But that is it. That is the extent of my gaming. So the 8600GT will be more than good for me.

no doubt the 8600gt will do you justice.. that is still a big jump.. i would say it would fall next to something that of a 7700gt if it were created.. lol

but if you don't mind ebay.. there are x1900xt's for sale around 100 dollars that cream the 8600gt

Get a high end last gen card over the 8500gt.

I used one as a temp card and I could barely run Sins of a Solar Empire which isnt demanding in the least. And games like Crysis, faugetaboutit.
