    I would say 2600xt, but not sure. How much are you wanting to spend?

    I don't know about in Pakistan, but online here you can grab a 3850 for under $150. You might be better off having one of your TPU buddies buying it for you and shipping it to you.

    Therefore I = win :p

    Honestly, thats all we need to say. There wont be any other options, those HD3850s sure are WAY under RRP... I was going to say 8600GTS until I saw them :laugh:

    Yeah. The single slot HIS version is $110 after $10 MIR. Honestly, that almost makes buying a 3870 unjustifiable.

    In all honesty, 2600XT I have read pulls a tiny margin above the 3650 in older games, but its a negligible difference. But either way both are on par BUT the 3650 does not consume as much power.
