gaming?..don't get any Dx10 midrange or low range card then.

The midrange and low range dx10 cards are only good fpr Video and HTPC's...You'd get much better performance from other cards...

Nab yourself a X1950 pro or X1950 xt....They have much higher power requirements so make sure your PSU can support it but the performance difference is VAST. the x1950 pro can be nagged on new egg for around 140. While the x1950xt is around 160-170. Try to nab the x1950xt if you can. The 256 mb version. Damn great card for the money...

IThe low/mid DX10 cards are only good for video and HTPC...not gaming...for the price range you'd get MUCH better performance with a x1950 pro or xt.

i hate all the people saying the 8600 sucks... if hes got a smaller PSU, and he doesnt game at high resolutions.. then yes a low-midrange 8xxx card is good for him. from what ive seen the 8600 preforms about the same as the 7600 series, and those were pretty good cards! my roommate plays oblivion with medium settings on a 7600.. so that 8600 would work just fine for him. plus it hardly uses any power.

They 8500 and 8400 cards are very bad for gaming and really only have a role for multi-media PCs.

The 8600GT card is not a bad low-end gaming card.
Other cards are better, but it can now be had for very little money.

It has made the best card for the money in it's price range.
However, a little more money will get a much better card.

People say that because it's true, also if you are building a computer geared towards gaming or any other type of intensive app, it is not recommended but demanded that you own a decent power supply not only to power your hardware but for the stability.

On topic, there's really nothing I can say... Kamrooz pretty much said everything I was going to say. Well, maybe I can try stressing a bit more how bad the 8400/8500/8600 series are, they are about as bad as dog poo or HD2600.
