    Why?

    The 7600GT is in fact faster than the 8600GT (for the most part but it has DirectX 10 support...)

    Proof or it didn't happen.

    Why wouldn't they put it in the iMac? It's just a new MXM card for the 24" model.

    You must realize how illogical that sounds.

    Indeed, I meant of course the Geforce 8600GT has support for DirectX 10.

    Ok, I may have been a bit harsh in my statement.

    You only read the final comments though. There's an even GREATER reason that the 8400/8600 lines are crippled. It's for mobility parts. The 8800 GTS is a much greater value if you're looking for DX10 support and performance. The 8600 is faster then the 7600 GT but not by much. The biggest limiting factor being the memory bus width. You're better off getting 7900/X1900 parts for value performance.

    Now the 8500 fits just fine for the HTPC market.

    Care to play again?

    Sorry, are we somehow competing or did I miss anything?

    Regardless, in my opinion, I don't think it is a worthy upgrade. I have a feeling Apple is going to use AMD chips, like the Radeon HD 2600 or HD 2400.

    Exciting day coming up on Monday for the mid-range and low-end graphic card market.

    I'd like to see what ATi has to offer first for the HD series. I'll make my call but I do have a feeling it'll turn out better then nVidia's mainstream series. I find what nVidia has to offer rather lacking right now unless you plan on getting the 8800 Series.
