179 dollars for 8600U must be a mistake in the Google translation..

I mean come on.. $650 dollars for 8800, then only $179 for an 8600u?

kinda makes sense, its replacing the 7900gs

Not surprising since Nvidia made a TON of cards based on the G71. With the arrival of Vista, the demand for DX 10 cards in the gaming community will certainly increase Still, DX 9 cards will be around for some time as they are needed to run Vista with all the eye candy.

Well looking at the specs it looks like mainstream cards will be going with a 256bit bus. 8600 256bit, 8800GTS 320bit and GTX 384bit
Expect the diffrence from the GTX to the GTS ie an extra 30% decrease.

Some people may like those 320mb GTS cards because they are reported to have the same clocks, less ram and be 299usd.

It's not enough memory anymore well to me due to GRAW needing a 512MB video card to use high settings and i can imagine this being the begining.

One thing. If you run these cards in sli, wouldnt it put a whole load of strain on the mobo as the cards dont have a power connector?

I just don't look for overclocking to be that great if it doe;nt have no extra power connectors.

there's some spec's on this site. 8800GT "128 bit bus" WTH

The 8600 ultra might have a power connector then. The card pictured might be a GT which will make sense.
Actually it looks exactly like the 7300GT.
