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

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.

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.

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.
