    any of the latest nvidia drivers will work perfectly with it

    you can also get beta drivers from Nvidia which usually push the card a little harder and most of the time are as stable as the final releases just lacking some of the bells and whistles

    The latest driver listed is 25th September 2008?? I don't think you can call that archived?

    8600gt is a decent graphics... I have the 8800 gtx, which I got a last year - and although its was over £300 - it was worth it!!
