    Ok here is the deal, i live in estonia and i don't have very much to choose from. I'm using only one internet-shop for my new pc. And now i need a gfx card. The thing is that i first wanted a xfx 8600Gt but now i have tho' a little more and maybe even a ATI card.

    Ok my budget is about ~170 $
    BUT the prices here in ESTONIA are much higher.
    So Please no NEWEGG prices or something like that.

    The cards i have for choosing ;)

    Asus EAH2600XT D4/ HTDI/ 256M, RADEON HD 2600XT/ 256MB DDR4/ PCI-Ex16/ 128-bit/ DVI/ DUAL DVI-I/ HDCP/ Engine 800MHz/ Memory 2.2GHz/ HDTV/ HDMI/ TV out/ via DVI-VGA adapter - 171$

    XFX VGA 256MB GDDR3 PCIE16 8600GT/ TV 2DVI PV-T84J-UDF3 800mhz/1400mhz (not overclocked) - 165$

    MSI NX8600GT-T2D256E-OC overclocked, 8600GT/ 256MB DDR3/ 128bit/ PCI-E/ Engine 560MHz/ Memory 1600MHz/ 2xDVI/ TV out/ Dual VGA/ HDTV ready - 163$

    Sapphire ULTIMATE X1650PRO PCI-E 256MB GDDR3, 128bit, Memory Clock 1400MHz, Core Feq. 600MHz, TV-OUT, Dual DVI, Lite retail - 150$

    lower cards are like 7600 and 8500 but

    When my next paycheck will be big i even can buy this:

    Sparkle GeFORCE 8600GTS PCI-E, 256MB gDDR3, 128Bit, Core Clock 675MHZ, Memory Clock 2000MHz, HDTV-OUT, DUAL DVI - 220$



    Now, i think that the Asus EAH2600XT is the best from the list above?

    But when i get good paycheck - wich is better - Asus EAH2600XT OR Sparkle GeFORCE 8600GTS


    Help me with this :)

    Thank You guys ^^

    I have AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
    but i probably will upgrade that in the near futer ;)

    The shop websites are in Estonian :D you would not understand anything xD


    And i already list up ALL the available card's on my usual internet shop

    For starters just help me choose from the list above, ok?

    And if you have any better ideas for a card , just say and i'll look it up in some other internet shop of estonia. Ok?

    Now i found out something:

    8600GT has 256MB DDR3/ 128bit/ Engine 560MHz/ Memory 1600MHz/ Stream Processors: 32

    2600XT has 256MB DDR4/ 128bit/ Engine 800MHz/ Memory 2200MHz/ Stream Processors: 120

    These specs say to me that the 2600XT pwns the 8600Gt quite big. What do you think? Should i go for the 2600XT? Thanks for reply :)

    8600GTS is probably too expensive for me so i'll stick with the 2600XT if nobody won't come out with a reason not to?

    In my budget are the cards:

    8600GT (8500 - 7600 too)
    2600XT (1600 and 1650 too)

    1950PRO and 7900GS are 20$ more here ;P
