Just replaced my old 7300SE with this 8600GT from Gainward along with 2 gigs of 6400 DDR2. Just to point out, this actually takes up the space of 2 PCI slots, but only uses 1 slot for the connection due to the outrageous red heat sink on it! Performance wise, I have had this chugging out 160FPS maxed settings on Guild Wars (4x aliasing, 1440x900). What's even better is the connectivity, VGA for your analogue monitors, DVI for newer flat screens and HDMI for you HDTVs. Unless you have 4gb of fast DDR2 ram, dual/quad core CPU and play on a 21"+ monitor, there is no need to buy the 8800GT! This works sublime on my PC (1.9 dual core, 2gb ddr2 ram, 1440x900) and for £80!!!
