The new 8600 series has hit the internets, and there are plenty of different manufacturers to rank. Start off with HotHardware's review of the GeForce 8600 GTS and GT cards from Asus and XFX.

Nvidia's upcoming 8600 and 8500 series cards have already revealed themselves a few times so it was only fair that the baby-DirectX 10 low-end 8300 card would eventually step out into the spotlight.
