Having looked around, I have got it down to these two cards but am not sure which one would be best for me, I will be building an AMD 64X2 Dual Core 6000 desktop on an MSI K9N SLI Platinum NF570 SLI, S AM2, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 533/667/800, SATA II, SATA RAID, ATX Motherboard.

256MB HighTech Radeon X1950 XT, IceQ3 v2, PCI-E (x16), Mem1800, GDDR3, GPU 650 MHz, 16 Pipes, VIVO

256MB XFX 8600GTS XXX, PCI-E (x16), Mem 2260 MHz, GDDR3, GPU 730 MHz, 2x Dual Link DVI-I/HDTV, HDCP

Any Advice guys, I'll mainly be wanting to play such games as Bioshock and M.O.H as well as Counter-Strike?

1950xt with no question. Probably the best deal on a "midrange" card right now. Tomshardware and i think gamespot did a comparison on graphics cards for bioshock and the 1950xt blew the 8600 away.

Since you're building from the ground-up, why are you going AMD? Doesn't even an overlocked e2160 beat the 6000+ in nearly all benchmarks?
