Get 8600GTS instead of 8800GT 512MB
Newegg.com - ASUS EN8600GTS/HTDP/256M GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

8600GTS performs better even if it have less memory

If you want a single slot card I would recomend this video card instead of the 8600.
8600 have single slot cooling

Sorry I was in a hurry when I was typing that. I know the 8600 gt has single slot cooling. What I meant was that of the single slot cards available I would recommend the HD 2600XT 512mb over the 8600gt.
