About NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
The old computer you have sitting around has not seen much use, but with the recent upgrade you just added, you can enjoy some classic games that more modern machines are not compatible with. While no longer the newest model, the NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT is something of a landmark graphics card, and it still does a great job of running classic games or simply handling the daily graphics processing needs of a work computer. At the time of release, it was the first card from NVIDIA to utilize unified shader architecture, allowing for much more efficient and flexible use of the graphics card resources. Modern versions of the card are still competitive for daily use thanks to the 256 MB DDR3 memory, and the card will easily cope with web-based images and graphics demands. The NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT is the standard model for a desktop computer. The NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT is designed for laptops, and you can browse the large inventory on eBay for the right model.
