well somewhere near an X1950XT to not bottleneck it.. but its not gonna fit in that budget... why not wait another 6 more days and see if you can fit an 8800gt in there...

but an 8600gt is always so underestimated... overclock that... it goes up really easily.... darn near 7950gt speeds
Woah! Have to step in here, the 128-bit memory interface heavily lower performance, no matter how high those clocks are. And nowadays, a 7950GT isn't too much to speak of :P
