    If you've been paying attention to techPowerUp! news for the past few days, you know that NVIDIA and its partners have recently released the GeForce 8600 series. I won't bore you with the details, as you've probably read them at least fifty times by now (though if you'd like a refresher, please click here). However, prospective customers of this new graphics card have asked themselves: Where can I get it? And as of today, the answer is one of the most loved computer part providers in the USA: Newegg. If you live in the USA, and want an 8600, you'll be very happy to know that they are quite available on Newegg. The 8600GT series starts at $170, and the 8600GTS series starts at $200.

    hmmm...the xfx 8600gt is not so far away from the gts in terms of clocks (which is the only difference that i can see between the gt and gts)...

    It has been said before, but $200 for a 128 bit card is to much money. I would have to say it would be better to spend the extra $50-$70 for a entry level 8800 series card. Who knows, they may actually perform well. We will have to wait and see.

    I still will be holding out untill we see what the R600 has to offer, before I buy my first DX10 card.

    i'll wait for the price to drop a bit before i make the plugged, thoughi think they would be a decent upgrade from my 7600gs.

    well the only difference that i can see between the GT and GTS is just clock speeds....around 100-150 mhz difference.

    and the XFX is only 50 mhz difference, and cost the least.

    some listing i have seen lists the 8600gts gpu as a G84-400 while refering to the GT gpu as the G84-300 so there may be some specific gpu core diffrences.

    128 - bit ,wud it kill nvidia to make these 256-bit atleast for the love of god , cause i am not paying 170 dollars for 128-bit , now if that was 120 dollars that be fine and where its 200 if it was 150 then yeah maybe. i have always been an ati fan , although i jumped the gun and bought nvidia basically due to i got mine for 350 dollars (special offer through pny) ........... tahts about it and for 350 bucks the 8800 gts 640mb does the job more than well.
