Christmas is coming um and my gaming really lacks in the video card department I was thinking between a 8500GT 512mb $159 or a 8600GT 512mb $183 But before i buy one i would like to know if its worth spending $20 more for one of these graphics cards dose it make that difference so anyone can give me feed back and im on a tight budget.
8600GT Overclocked 512MB GDDR3 :)
It'll hammer an 8500GT:)
Or even consider a Radeon 3850, it performs very well and will only get better with new drivers. it's also well within your price range.
Of those two cards, the 8600GT is much better.
But for that kind of money ($150-180), you could do better. Where are you buying from? The 8600GT is going for $100-$110 at newegg.com which you can use if you live in the US.
I also agree with getting the 8699GT card.
mmh and the 8600 gts? its a good card as well or was it more mediacenter focused? An ati radeon 2600 or 2900?
For 180$ you get HD 3850 that will crush 8600GT
3850 ati radeon? mmh i need to say to say that the nvidia below the 8800 isnt that great, but hey thats mine opinion!
Radeon HD 3850 looks like a great card, not that expensive either.
ok the card im in vavor of the 8600gt now and the reson the prices are high is because i live in australia so newegg is no help for me:bawl: and im on a budget of no more than $200 oh and my spec a nforce 430mother borad a amd X2 6000 3.0ghz per core on borad sound and my graphics card sucks its a nividia 6150se on borad and 4gb daul os Xp Vista and Mac OSX so a good card would be the cerry on top of my system
