Default 8600GTS for 160$ at zipzoom

Just thought this was a decent buy and that some of you might be interested in getting a nice DX10 card. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...t=pricegrabber
I'll vouch for zipzoomfly, got my sig from them, very reliable, very fast.

that is a good price...unfortunately i just upgrated this dell with a new motherboard so i could upgrade from pci to agp, (the agp motherboard was the only one i could upgrade to where i would be ablt to re-use my pent 4 socket 478 CPU and my 2GB of ram)...and i just bought a 7600GS agp card for it....this motherboard doesn't support pci-e, so can't get the 8600GTS yet....have to wait till i do a pci-e build sometime in the future.

The 8600GTS is supposedly a very nice buy right now, but you reall oughta spend your money on an 8800GTS if you have the money to SLI two 8600GTS. Whatever you do though, don't get the 8600GT, they aren't worth the money.

Well the Radeon HD 2900XTX will be released in less than a week, so your wait will be coming to an end very soon, as well as the waiting of many other patient people.
