+1, I'm leaning towards the gamma being too high myself.

Just so you know hohohee, the 8600GTS is a pretty crap card, and I have no idea why you'd want to buy it since it's slower than your current 8800GTS. And well buying a card because there's a hot chick (that's not even real) on the sticker...WTF? Are you serious?

yeah im foreal about the hot chick.

this one doesnt show her side boob though. 9800gx2 do.



in the past months i saw several 8600 GTS for under 49.99 in ebay. i might get it for fun and for experience another nvidia. not to replace my 8800 gts aha thats crazy but to install in my other rig. my athlon64 3200+ system. i have x700 pro installed right now on that system.



yeah 8600 GTS is probly a crap card compare to 8800 GTS G92 but i dont think its that bad. it is atleast better than 9500GT. 8600 GTS combine with 4gig ram xp is incredible although i might get low frame but i calculate as a fine setup.


oh and the pic above is i took myself.

^^ Wow... I honestly never thought that cg fantasy chicks sold vid cards better than cards without them, lol. I always based my gpu decisions based on price/performance.

Seriously, if your deciding factor is a CG girl on the card, let me help you out....

Buy a proper card based on price:performance. Then go online, find some anime/CG girl of sorts, print it out, and tape it onto the card's heatsink. This way, you can have your dream girl in whatever position you want on your video card.

I'm sorry but I just can't take this thread seriously.

Default Either ATI or nVidia is fine, for good side boob CG stay with Asus or MSI

i actually would perfer this on over the other boob job

Anyways, you shouldn't pick GPU depending on the sticker chick

But if you do insist, i say you go with the Asus chick



I insist you get the P5Q Deluxe too




we need more people like the OP in here
