In compared to their predecessors? The DX10 mid range cards by ATI and NVIDIA are more like experimental DX10 cards to me. Like the 8600GTS is on par with the 7900GT in terms of performance. Even though the technology and specs of the 8600GTS are way better. The mid range DX10 cards of both companies have seen to perform better or worst than their predecessors which basically makes them the same in terms of performance. The only real advantage these cards have is the support for DX10.
So if you say your 8600GT performs below average you know why. Its just a GeForce 7 with a little more bells and whistles.
