Looks nice, but newer cards will be out by the time I migrate to a PCI-e base lol (probably end of the year).

hmm...now that's something to consider. I was very close on deciding whether to get the 7600gt or the x1650xt within the next two months or so. i really didn't care about dx10 cards beacause i'm not always playing the latest games, but i'll probably wait for the dx10 cards.

how much power do they consume anyway? more than the 7900?

Wow, so the 8300 looks like it is better than the 7600 I have now. That is a lot of shaders and high clocks for that price.

I'd rather wait for 2nd generation DirectX 10 cards. Everyone remember DirectX 9.0 and the Geforce FX 5000 series?

I had the 5600 Ultra and it was a crap card.

Wow nice cards. I wish I could have waited. I bought a 7600GT about 2 weeks ago. Oh well.

You know, the first DX9 card was the Radeon 9700.

Update: GeForce 8600 Has 128-bit Memory Interface?

The recent rumors regarding the GeForce 8600 (G84) of having a 256-bit memory interface is incorrect. We are able to confirm at this point of time that GeForce 8600 series will be 128-bit and has 256MB GDDR3 memories onboard. Onto the rumours, We heard there are 2 versions; 8600GT and 8600GS clocked at 650/1800MHz and 550/1400MHz respectively for core and memories. Both come with 64 shader processors.

Yup. And it rocked. For almost 2 years it was the best card on the market. <3

This information is correct only there is no GT but a 8600 GTS at 645/1800MHz. Apparently this card can clock to 1GHz on air with volt mods.
