Default 8600 Gt?

Frankly I'm dieing for a 8600 GT, I've decided to ignore the 7950 in favor of the 8600GT. Frankly I don't see whats so difficult about getting the 8600GT released, its a cooled down version of the 8800GT.

I can't wait cause I want DX10 since it is confirmed COD4 is coming out, chances are DX10 game (eye candy=pretty) and COD5 in brainstorm session ATM.

Any links/interesting discussions you guys have found.

so COD4 will actually be on PC eh? i'm still irritated that those bastards screwed the PC gamers out of COD3.

I heard somewhere that the 8600 wont be around until march or so.. i'm not really worried about DX10.. it was only 6 months ago that I upgraded to DX9..
