Agreed, it really makes the card feel a little bit more special.

However at a £100 price-point you can't complain about the 8600 GT

An XP driver bringing these capabilities is currently being developed by nVidia.
A certain teacher peering over my shoulder asks if this should read Vista ?

An excellent pov of the midrange cards imo, great point about the performance per $$$ too. Scope for self improvement varying too.

I can see me buying some of these for people, and to be fair based on the review I wouldn`t necessarilly buy the same card for all of them

Also included is full hardware decoding of H.264 video as well as VC-1 content. I could not test this in this review as I am using Windows XP Professional for the tests and not Vista. An XP driver bringing these capabilities is currently being developed by nVidia.
Nope Trust me, I went through this thing for about an hour
