well guys i guess im wondering will a 8600 GTS 320 mb be worth the upgrade. I can get them fairly cheap through my job at best buy and im pretty unhappy with my 7900 GT's performance in LOTR online. So what do you think, its hard to find any benchmark where these two are compared?

if you mean 8800GTS then yes, but seeing as you have a pretty decent card( i still have my XFX 7900GT lying around works great) i dont see an immediate need for such a thing.

no i mean the 8600 GTS, its the midrange offering from Nvidia. Clearly the 8800GTS would be an upgrade. I think the 8600 GTS is only 256 mb, so apologies for the typo above. But im talking about teh 7900 GT vs. the 8600 GTS. Bump please

Oh hell no, the 8600GTS can't even beat a X1950Pro, let alone a 7900GT. keep what you have or save up for a 8800GTS.
