    Default MSI 8600GTS (passive cooled) question

    Has anyone had any experience with the MSI 8600GTS (passive cooled). I just ordered one from newegg, and am wondering if someone might have any advice as to what might be expected from this card.

    My last graphics card was a PNY Verto GeForce 6200, so this will be quite an improvement. Had it overclocked to 425/750 stable. Hoping to get same results comparatively with the 8600GTS.

    Will update as soon as I get the new case built.

    hm, one of my mobo's has a PCIE slot, and with the summer cash flowing in, I might consider the 8600. Let me know how far you can push it.
