im not expecting to get anything near that, when I mean hold over, I mean something so I dont have a blank screen and can surf the web. I dont expect to game with it. I sold my 7600GT I know it was good but because the 8600 Ultra is coming out soon and at about the same price I wanted to get rid of the 7600GT and have enough $ for the 8600 ultra when it comes out

Note that that only has 64 MB of onboard memory. The rest is shared with the main system RAM.

I don't see a point in selling the 7600.. now you can't play anything period... and I'm pretty sure the 8600 series wont be starting out at $150.. my 7600GT was around $180 when I bought it.

The 8600U is supposed to be $200, the 8900gs is the next in line at $250 aparantly.
