the 8600 is a bad choice for an economy gaming card. i had one for a while and have to say it was kind of pitiful. i could play everything on it but i sure had to ugly it up to play Crysis or UT3. the best advice i can give is look for a new card. if you are budget constrained, the 4850 ...hell even a 4650 ( we are talking 60-80 bucks)would serve you better.
