XFX GeForce 8600 GT XXX

Hi,

Just wanted some opinions on this card - The XFX 8600 GT XXX - and whether or not it's any good. Haven't really got a lot of cash and can get it for around £50 mark, I want a card that will play the newish games decently whilst also not breaking the bank. Could I have some suggestions as to if this card is any good or if you have other suggestions for around the £50 mark? My motherboard is the M2v VIA K8T900 too, will this card work on this?!?

Many thanks

  1. My old rig had this card.

    For its price, it does its job. Think Call of Duty 4, 1280x1024, Medium settings.

    You might want to look into either:
    NVIDIA 8800 GTS
    NVIDIA 9800 GTX
    NVIDIA 260
    ATI 4850
    ATI 4870

    Those would be the five cards I would look at right now. The 8800GTS and 4850 should be the first two you should look at.
  2. that card is crap for gaming i would suggest atleast a 8800gso for gaming something like this:

  3. I think you should stretch to £100 becuase then you can get a 4850 which will play Call of Duty 4 and other new games maxed out. You can get it here for 110: http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-070-GW

    EDIT: It will absolutely blow that 8600Gt away. The difference will be unbelievable.
  4. ma frnd can barely play that game with his 8600gt at 1280x1024.but i still couldn recommend that card. go wit 9600gso atleast
  5. Hi I have the 8800 GT and it works great with FSX. Matter of fact, I have all the setting on Max and I hardly see a glitch in the movement. I paid a little over 230 but I think it's well worth it.

  6. 1) Your response, even at the time, is completly useless because OP clearly sets a budget.
    2) The thread is from over a year ago.
