This is the cheapest 8600GT if you include MIR
Newegg.com - Leadtek PX8600GT 256MB Standard GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail


Edit: And don't forget than X1950Pro you posted is underclocked. X1950Pro at stock have 1380MHz memory speed, but the one you posted have only 1200MHz memory speed

They won't be able to handle high resolutions, or intense image quality. But they aren't bad cards. The 8600 performs the same in DX9 as DX10 in well coded games, just not in poorly ported games that came out not too long ago.

Personally, I would get the higher end from last generation (7900GS/x1950pro) if you are buying right now. If you can wait a while, wait til X-mas. Supposedly, nVidia will be releasing some new cards soon. It should eventually push the 8800GTS down in price, which is a great card.

IMO those cards are junk for dx10...just get the 8800 series or wait for the g92 series to comeout in a few months.

This is only if you want to game in dx10.
