    would give you slightly better performance at the same price. However, it is a DX9 card...and might not be future-proof because DX10 games can jump onto the shelves at any moment.

    If you want DirectX 10 support with okay performance, then the XFX 8600GT XXX is a good choice. The "XXX Edition" cards by XFX are always the most highly overclocked products of each respective chipset.
    For example, the XFX 8600GT XXX is clocked higher than any other 8600GT card made by other nVIDIA brands. If you do end up getting the 8600GT, then get the one you linked to, it's faster than the rest.

    The 7900 how does that run on vista because I'm trying to find a card that can run it without driver issues as I've had with previous cards in the past.

    I would go for it for sure. I own the exact same card and paid $ 164.99 about 5weeks ago from newegg. Their price is also 149.99 but haven't seen that rebate yet. It gives me a Vista score of 5.9 for aero and 5.6 for gaming graphics.
