Hi, I am looking at upgrading my graphics card from an eVGA 6600LE to a 8600GT or a 2600XT.
Which one would be best suited for the motherboard? Would the 8600 go better with the NVIDIA chipset?
I have a budget of approx. £75. I have been looking at these:

256MB MSI 8600GT, PCI-E (x16), Mem 1400 MHz, GDDR3, GPU 540 MHz, 2x Dual Link DVI-I/HDTV Silent

256MB Sapphire HD2600XT PCI-E(x16) 128Bit 2200MHz GDDR4 GPU 800MHz CrossFire 2xDVI-I/HDTV

Spec is A8N32-SLi Deluxe with an AMD3200+ and 512MB of memory (looking for 2GB at the moment), running XP.
I am going to be playing Quake Wars and watching DVD's.
Thanks in advance.

The only advance of the Nvidia card would be that you could SLI in the future.

Thanks rolli59, wasn't sure if keeping the same chipset and video driver vendor would be the better option. Don't think I'll be going SLi, so HD2600 it is then.
