    What's the reasoning behind going from 7800GTX SLI to 8600GT SLI? That's not an upgrade of any kind...

    you rich bastards :3eyes:

    i only had cheap graphics, all from Nvidia, and only had 5

    Diamond something, cant remember (i dont even know if its nvidia lol) but its very old
    Geforce 2 MX400 (dont know anything about this one tbh, i didnt know much back then)
    Geforce FX5600XT 256MB DDR2 (had it for 2/3 years, only recently i realized how the FX5 series sucked)
    Geforce 7300LE 256MB DDR2 (bought it to wait for the R600, but it turned out to be a dud, so waited for the R680, but turned out to be a dual-chip card and too expensive, so still waiting for the perfect cheap card)
    8600M GS (dunno if you count laptop cards, but it happens to be my best card so far lol :p)

    now what? i need a new mainstream card (but better than 8600 and HD2600 and HD3600), so i think ill go for an HD3850 or 9600GT, wichever goes below 120$ first.
