XFX Fatal1ty 8600 GT Professional Series
Published: 1st July 2007 | Source: XFX | Price: |Conclusion
The XFX fatal1ty 8600 GT is a great performing card, just as it's brother the 8600 GT "XXX" Edition was. With a passive cooler, excellent "out of the box" overclocks and decent overclocking after the factory you can't complain.
Pricewise the XFX 8600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series is only a few pounds above the "XXX" Edition and a little above the rest of the market at around £99 @ Komplett . I think the extra little bit of cash is worth it, although you could buy a stock clocked 8600 GT for less and fit an aftermarket cooler onto it.
However if you're looking for good looks out of the box, a nice overclock and a very quiet (silent) card then look no further.
The XFX Fatal1ty 8600 GT get's a big OC3D thumbs up and an "HTPC Approved" Award.
