Hi all ,Two years ago i bought a bfg 7800 gtoc pcie gfx card with a life warranty, two weeks ago my gfx cards overheated and stopped working, return it to Bfg and they sent me back a 8600 gtoc pcie , cause the 7800 was discontinued. I thought they would have send me a 8800. Did a got screwed , i know it is a newer model but is it performing less than the 7800 ? or should i asked for a 8800 ?

Based on Tom's Hardware VGA Charts, it looks the 8600GTS and 7800GT are similar performers. You got a 8600GT, not even a GTS, correct? I think you should call em up and ask for an 8800GT(probably a stretch, but worth a try :)) but at least a 8600GTS.

well my 8600gt (a heavily overclocked version) is way faster in newer games than my 7800gs was so it might be a fair trade but either way you should try to swindle an 8800 out of it.
