best dx10 card for low price

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
i'm about to build a new rig and i'm going to take my 8800gts out of it and get something else to put in its place, so i need a good cheap dx10 card. I was looking at the 8600gt, but i noticed that some of them have either 512mb of memory or gddr3, but not both. Which would be better to have?

For a couple bucks more i would get the 8600GTS its better than the GT.So 8600GTS it is.
But why don't you keep your 8800GTS card instead?

A 8600GT with 256mb of GDDR3 is what you want.

The 512mb versions are just gimmicks because most have GDDR2 (very old tech) memory.

There is none. There is no DX10 graphic card that is BEST in term of DX10 performance and for the low price.

i'm keeping the gts, but im going to get something a little scaled down so i can take this one w/ me to lan parties. The gts is going in my new rig.
The cheapest 256 gddr3 8600gt is about 120 from evga, and the 8600gts is about 170. Do you think i could OC the gt to get near gts scores?

I have seen some 8600gt with 512MB GDDR3 actually

Does anyone know if they are any good?

Edit: Does the HD2600XT (256MB GDDR4) perform like it? Just curious.

For lower prices, 8600GTS.

However, the 8800GTS 320 is undeniably the best DX10 card for price vs. performance.
