GeForce 7600 GT xXx Edition (Temperary video card, looking to upgrade:)
As i've noticed, GeForce 8600 has come out, which i've been waiting for... I'm planning on putting my 7600 back into my athlon x2, and upgrade the Core 2 Duo... I found that GF 8600 ranges from $200 to $300 CND at TigerDirect.ca, so do the other high end DirectX 9 video cards, the 7900 gs, 1950pro, 7950gt... etc.. i was just woundering, should i buy the gf 8600, or buy a directx 9 card?? Does the 8600 Outperform the 7900 gs, 1950pro, 7950gt etc. ?? If it does, which model is the best? is it worth spending $100 more for the BFG GeForce 8600 GTS OC Here , or is it better to stick with the $200 8600GT ?? All in all, could you please inform me as much as you can, and guide me in the wrong direction? DirectX 9, or DirectX 10 ??
Thank you for all your help in advance,
