More about just
  1. That's literally a new build not just an upgrade. Cause you have an entire PC that you can just put on ebay/craigslist. You'll like it alot better when you buy a graphics card.
  2. Nice bottlenecking GPU, ^_^.
    Let me know if you want to give me that 8600GT (running 7600GT).

    Shadow, of COURSE you can have my 8600 AND my *9800*, all you have to do is trade me for a comparable ATI :pt1cable: Oh wait, I sold the 8600, so I guess you can only have the 9800!! I mistook and called my card a 9600 when it is in fact a 9800...
