    requriements

    Must be pci express
    Be able to do HD
    Connect to a LCD tv
    Run on windows vista

    I was lookin at the 8800 gts but ive read it may be bad overkill.

    All recomendations are welcome.

    also do i need a dx10 card just yet?

    Hi theres a review of Nvidias new cards, specifically testing out its HD capabilities over at Annandtech:

    Seems the geforce 8600 does a very very good job of HD films..although the prices of these cards are still high, So I'll be waiting for them to review its little brother, the geforce 8500 as I've seen it on Ebay for 50pounds+p&P..

    There are a few reviews floating around: basically the 8500gt/8600gt/8600gts have identical video performance, they just vary for gaming.
