    Did you even bother to take note of the differences between in-game settings? 8800 GTX is running at 1600x1200 and has 16 X AA / 16 X AF and still manages to kick the 8600 GT's when the 8600 GT OC is running only at 1280x1024 and has NoxAA / NoxAF. That is a very significant difference.

    Yes I saw that, but I still would rather save money. Maybe if I had a college discount or my mommy was paying I would go for a 8800GTX, but as it is I have more important things to spend my money on.

    Got this sucker for $4,000, i love discounts.

    and before you say anything about software compatibality, anything I dont want to emulate i just stick on vista ultimate which is dual booted.

    retail its alot more. Apple only has a few vid cards that are supported, and that is the biggest gripe i have. Other than that I love it, but Its not such a big deal since I will not be playing any games on it and if I did the most intensive game I play is Eve-Online and Starfleet Command 3

    Thinking on just getting a workstation card. It's mostly for video and picture editing. (mostly video).

    I would have rebuilt my old computer, but with the size discount I got from Apple, I decided to just get one of them. It was alot cheaper and it looks so purtty.

    RAM: 4x Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200

    All with custom water cooling done by me:

    This is an old picture with some old hardware in it but I used the same cooling set up but added a 2x 120 radiator in the front as well
