    I now have a XFX7900GT XXXed which I want to sell in order to buy a new card. I've been looking at the 8600GTS because it is (Supposedly) cheap and on par with my 79GT. Now is where my problem lies: I am a South African... yeah that place thats always behind other countries when it comes to technology. I read that the 86GTS is going for $200-250. Now doing the math, thats R1440-1800(SAR), which isn't bad considering I can sell my 79GT for roughly R2400(SAR). I want to now, if possible, could any other South African help me, or could anybody help me with finding a place where I could buy the card for that price?

    The only places that I found listing to have the card is charging aprox. R2800 for it!! thats roughly $388! I'm a student with limited funds and would appreciate any help as to info on where to buy and in extreme cases how.
