For that price you can get a 7900GS, which is better than that 8600GT.

how about the 8600gts? its a bit more but not by much. i'm not too sure because the only differance seems to be that it can play DX10 but since i heard that it cant realy run the games that well should i bother or just go with the 7900gs?

I was just trying to fit his budget. But he can go for the HZs, if he has the money, and wants to.
