8600gt isnt in a league with the 3850, now the 3850 and 8800gt r in the same league, but a league where the 8800gt's team is STACKED!

get the 3850 512mb version, it shall make you happy !

The ATI 3850 is the better performing video card of the two.

The 3850 competes more with the 8600GTS, and beats it by along way. The 3870 competes with the 8800GT.
