The second link does not work, but in general I would try and avoid the 8600s unless you need a good multimedia card.

The 1950Pro is a lot better. 8600GTS ain't worth it. As long as your res is less than 1600 x 1050, I think 256mb version of the 1950pro is just as good.

The X1950Pro is better but for the price of the one you picked, why not get an X1950XT;

Or if you have power issues and can only do the X1950Pro I'd suggest one of the ones on sale;

512MB won't make much of a difference, but if you want it, go with the second card on the list above IMO.
