for the price of the card (which is a really killer card) I can get the mobo, memory (which is DDR2 VS my current DDR), and vidoe card that's PCIx16 which performs better than AGP ever will
If only that were true..... Which it's not. The 8600GTS is better then the 7900GS.
you have to look at the second number in nvidia's product number. in this case 9 vs 6, thus, 7900gs > 8600GT which is probably in the price range you were expecting.
That would be dependent on the first number, not the second.
yes, the 8600 would give DX10 support, and some other new features

I would never suggest buying a 8600 series card, it's terrible when compared to the 7900 series, whether it be new or old games.
The 8600 doesn't have enough raw processing power to utilize any of the new features, so the existence of the new features means nothing as they will not produce any gains.
