DO NOT BUY A 8600GT

Since you have 140$, I suggest a 3870 or 3850 from newegg that will blow the doors off a 8600GT.

If you are looking at the 8600GT go with an 8600GTS if you can get one. That's what I run and I've been able to run every game AT LEAST on high settings. Most games I can hit max settings.

I personally say, spend some extra money now and get this MSI HD4850 for $167.99 after MIR

Yep... if you cant get any more money for a HD4850 then either 1 of those cards would be great and they would blow an 8600GT away... the 8800GT is a bit better than the 9600GT so go for the 8800GT if you can

Get a 9600GT, they are BARELY slower than an 8800GT and you wont even notice the difference. plus it sounds like the 8800GT is just a little out of your price range.

I know how the 9600GT performs because I have one sitting right here, collecting dust!

As a matter if fact it's the XFX one from an earlier post.

Scores 10000 in 3dmark 06. stock. the 4850 score 12500 at same. so....
post #17 of 22
then don't upgrade yet.. it's not worth spending the money on the 8600 anymore if you can wait and count up change in old coat pockets to get the 4850

whats wrong with a HD3650??
post #19 of 22
The 3650 is slow and a poor value in anything but an HTPC system.

**Yeah the 8800GT is so close yet so far away from being in my price range. I think I may be looking into a used one. We'll see though. What kind of power do those things consume? Will my 500W PSU handle it or should I look into a better one?
What about this???
