Overall its just more proof backing up what I been yelling about for a long time, current "DX10" midrange hardware sucks, its sub-par no question.
Just to add as well their DX9 performance is sub par as well and in cases worse than the cards they are meant to replace. (A 8600gt in some games is only barely quicker than a 7600GT)
