    Yeah.. The 8xx series was WAYWAYWAY too hot. I think they should be illegal to own.

    Don't you just love how the AMD processors just went down to such a low price? Expecially after you just bought one? :P

    I've found that the 8600GTS offers very good performance compared to the 8800GTX, not AS good but close. And its a shitload cheaper. But eh, brag rights i suppose.

    Not even close at all.

    [H]'s review of the BFGTech GeForce 8800 GTX and the XFX GeForce 8600 GTS XXX Edition compared...

    The 8800 GTX is at 16xAA and a lot higher resolution, with absolutely ALL eye-candy maxed out and still significantly performs a hell of a lot better then the 8600 GTS.

    Yes well, I'd still rather save $200 over 12 more average fps.
