IGP doesn't count as a graphics card. It's just a video controller with 3d support. And that 8600gt is kinda outdated. Planning on getting a new GPU?

I'm confused lol? do you run several rigs with same GFX cards? build several rigs for friends? REALLY unlucky with DOA cards?

hmm... looks like it's nvidia's turn again next time :p I get "idiot of the century" award for paying FULL price a few weeks after launch for the 8600GT (£120)

Yea, what wrong with the 8800GTX? With the selling of my 3870, im practically getting it for £30. Seems good to me. And im new (ish) to all this enthusiast stuff, so an upgrade like that should teach me some stuff.
