definatly the 7950, though keep in mind that is the $220 overclock version on the 8600gts, you can get the stock one for around $150 after MIR on newegg

you can get the cheaper one and manually overclock it i believe, you might want a PCI slot cooler just in case though, and most of those are about <$10
and for that large price difference...
