Nice review Matt..

I could be wrong here but when you say the increase of the overall 3DMark 06 results when overclocked is 200... Is it not 1000 ish??

I may well be wrong as I just scanned that part.. Will read in detail a little later.

Nice insight.

Certainly gets game spankage off the Ati alt card. Although the 3dmark scores are pretty much how I`d expect them to be.

Now they show this card sporting 3 possible outputs - can it manage that ?

1 BIG dissapointment for me, especially with it having HDMI as a standard connection, is no audio passthrough. MSI seem to have taken the corner of the market with this.

Hard to think the 8600 is about to become a `last generation` card.
