HD 2600 XT vs 8600 GTS - Page 2

post #11 of 16
If you're only deciding between those two, get the GTS...performs better as of now than the XT. Or if you need brute power, go for an X19XX series, which should be around the same price.

Like rest id save up and get a 8800 card you will kick your self down the road if a game comes out you really wanna play. And the 2600 or 8600 cant handle it then you have to upgrade again.

he keeps telling you guys he won't be gaming much and you keep talking about games. if it's a home theater application, i do believe the 2600s can do HDMI out, which should make your decision a very easy one. pick the card that can do HDMI any day of the week if you aren't a major gamer.

Hey you never know he might just change his mind if a really good game comes out. It doesn't hurt to be safe.

heres a 8800gts 320 for $288

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...A&promoid=1042

heres a great deal on a 8600gt that can OC to near gts speeds for $100 (edit: I see its on at ncix for the same price)

http://www.directcanada.com/products...anufacture=BFG

and here is a 8600 gts great price $168

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...A&promoid=1042

I dont think the performance is there with the 2600 series as the 8600 gt beats it except in dx10 where none of these mid range cards can put out a playable frame rate.
