7900GS because the 86 will only get around 10FPS in DX10 games and performs about the same as a 79 in DX10. Plus the 86 is much more expensive. If you really want an 8 series, go 88GTS 320. It's like $70 more expensive than the 86 (not twice as expensive as someone else stated).

People who are simply posting "8800," stop it. He didn't ask for useless comments.

Anyway, if the rig is not for a hardcore gamer, he does not need an 8800. It'll be a waste of power. The 8600 will be fine, especially if you want it to work with DX10. It's not a high-end card, but it will suffice. If you want more performance for now, the 7800s/7900s are good. But work everything around your budget. You may bump it down to the 7600s.

Disagreed. Like i said, if you want a DX9 card around the performance of an 86, then just get a 79GS or x19PRO. They're cheaper and probably do better. If you want DX10 compatibility, the benchmarks have shown that an 86 will be a complete waste; it will not "suffice." 30FPS on lowest settings is not "sufficient" to me.

if the 8800 is out of the budget, then go with a 7950 GT 256 ($189 newegg) or a 7900GS which should be even less.

As others have said, the 8600 would not bring that great of DX10 gaming quality, and would perform the same almost as a 7900 or so in DX9 gaming, so if the 8800 GTS is out of the question, the get a 7900 or 7950.

Thanks for all the input.

The way it's looking from the latest posts here, DX10 will bring just about any card out now to its knees, so that shouldn't be a factor in the short term. I had been suggesting that he get a DX10 Card, but now it doesn't seem so important.

I will likely move him in the direction of a 7 series.

I'm seriously shocked that no one has posted the X1950XT which wipes the 7900GS and even the 7950GT off the board, only for the low price of $179.99

But it has a RED PCB!

J/K. I hadn't really thought of ATI to be honest.

It also has a 30 MIR, for a total cost of 150.

Just because it supports DX10 doesn't mean it must be used in DX10 games only. The 8600GTS will beat the 7900GS by a bit in DX9, and don't forget how much better the 8600's are in overclocking. I believe we've seen a member with a voltmodded 8600GT reaching 6.9k in 3DMark06, and that was only a GT, not the more powerful GTS. According to Newegg, a 8600GTS can be had for merely $165: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130084

8800GTS isn't $70 more, but rather $115 more. As far as I know 8600GTS will provide better image quality than the 7900GS and X1950Pro, and it does consume less power and generates less heat. The price of the 8600GTS is about to hit that of the 7600GT very soon at this rate.
