Direct 10X
People say it runs real hot. Should I get it?

Re: Direct 10X
I think the reason it runs real hot is because it has no fan.

I would go with one that has a fan.

For $3 more, you should get the XFX GeForce 8600GT. It won't have the overheating issues as the Gigabyte one, and it will perform better due to it's higher clock speeds. :D

Get the 8600GTS, it's a much better buy than the 8600GT

^^My thinking as well. it seemed to be kinda universal between companies to only have like a $10 differance between the two.

$10 difference? LOL!

It's more like $50 between the XFX 8600GT and 8600GTS.

the point is for a few dollars more is A HUGE leap in performance

For those on a budget, $50 is quite a bit more then "a few dollars" when a lower priced card will perform nicely.
