Haha that's funny...
Halo 2 Vista isn't even DirectX 10. Compared to F.E.A.R. and games like that, the graphics are terrible.

It's 256.

The minimum requirement to run Halo 2 Vista is a 6000 series GeForce card. The 8600GTS should blow it away!

my 7900gs runs it prefectly, havent tested FPS yet tho, but I think the 8600GT is even with teh 7900gs so you should be ok, but I run mine in 1680x1050, so you res will be higher and that might cause a problem but I doubt it.

How come I cant Run fear on my computer? I have the 8600 GTS it recommends the highest settings the movies work fine but game play lagged like crazy...
I was told that this card would play any game on the highest settings, BF2142 and BF2 and Ghost Recon advanced war fighter lagged like crazy...

What are the other specs of the computer?? Assuming it's in your sig...it might want more RAM especially with those games in Vista.
