The GTS with the 256MB. 512MB RAM is unnecessary with a 128-bit bus, and the GTS is faster than the GT. But, although the 8600s are OK budget cards, you'd be MUCH better off with the link I posted above for a x1950 Pro 512MB used for about the same price. If you can't find a used x1950 Pro 512MB (or 256, which I have, and it works very well too), go witht he 8600GTS you linked above.

EDIT: Not a bad deal here too: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&Sku=P450-8650

If you don't mind searching around or looking on eBay, the 7900GTX is definitely the best card you can get for around the $150 price range.

Stay away from the 8600 series. Grab a 2900 PRO, HD 3850, X1950 PRO, 7900GS/GT/GTX.

Sorry, my bad...wrong thread.

If your friend has an extremely small PSU, go for the 8600GT. And I would still recommend it anyway since its only $79 (as the XFX XXX version linked above). Its a great card. Not the absolute best out there....but trust me, it gets the job done.

GeForce 8800GS Spec:
G92 Core.
65nm Process.
Core Clock: 650 MHz
Stream Processors: 32
Bandwidth 45.6 GB/s, can be more with an OC
Memory Running at: 1625 MHz
Bus Width: 192 Bit
Memory Type: GDDR3

I'd say grab one, it'll blow an 8600 GTS Out of the water.
GTS:

512 memory, 128 interface, 2000MHz memory clock
675MHz core clock, 32 stream processors

... I wouldn't say it "blows it out of the water..."
