Should I wait for the price of the 3850's to come down or is the x1950pro as good?

If you can afford the 3850 then buy it! it's way better than the x1950pro...

Like i said im just getting a cheap build together so i have something when i sell my current pc. As long as the 8600gt is just about as good as my 7600gt i have no worries. I can get a better card down the road, just not now since im on a very tight budget.

DDR4 version of the 2600xt will out perform the 8600GT, but 8600GTS is the winner.
Thers is a HD 3650 but since its DDR3, its like a 2600XT with DDR3 memory
