I've received my 8800GTX today, but that's only relevant in that it helps explain why I'm giving my former 8600GT to my 8-year-old daughter. How much can she and i expect her Pent D 840 3.2Ghz to bottleneck the 8600GT. Obviously, she'll have simple games to play, but from a purely hardware standpoint...? Given that the 8600 is already quite weak, will the Pent D strangle it more?
I really doubt that it would hinder it much if at all. I owned a xfx 8600gt for a while, with a amd 4000+ and it never held it up ( yes i realize 4000+ is better than a pent d ) but the card is just so weak...
I'm using it at low resolutions (1360x768) and it actually looks great and runs smooth, at least in the Supreme Commander that came with it. I think it'll be fine for an 8-year old (perhaps this was nVidia's intention?)
