It's 80 dollars after rebate.

I would really try to avoid t he 8600GT,8500GT, and 7600GT. They are all really ancient cards
I didn't realize that was a 8600GTS. Looks good, but according to reviews the $30 rebate will never come. So the price would be to much. I guess you get what you pay for. I may chip in for a nicer card. Like the other 8600GTS: Newegg.com - MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail then sell The Witcher (game comes with the card) for like $20 or something.
