Sigh, more and more people in ocn neglect the OP's situation before answering.
Did you even read his posts?
Considering he has an 8600GT, its easy to guess his cpu will probably be a core2duo or athlon x2, maybe even older.
He was also thinking of buying a used 9800GTX which means he's on a tight budget.
An HD6670 is cheap and obviously more future proof with dx11. At least it can run crysis 3, while the 9800GTX cannot.
