i dont know.. im still thinking.
their the same price...with mail-in rebate, and i might get the 8600gt because it got GREAT reviews. and also the 8600gt looks like a decent gaming card ( based off youtube )
ok, whatever you do DO NOT get the 8600gt, i was very unhappy with that card when i first had it. exact same one that your interested in actually. it was extremely underpowered and i soon regretted not saving up for something slightly more mainstream. now i have a 3870 and couldnt be happier....
although a 4870 would be nice =DD
if anything, go with the 3650 or 9500GT or even that nice 9600gso
4670 is probably the best card out of everything here being mentioned, the only thing is I'm not sure if 300W is enough for it. Let me check.
It would depend on what the rest of your setup is, but I think you can run the 4670 with 300W. Some review sites has stressed systems with this card and couldn't break 210W of power usage, so I'd say there's a good chance.
Same intial cost as that 8600GT, but of course without the rebate. The 8600GT is a rather weak card, but then it's stronger than the 3650. Still, the Radeon 4670 is just so much faster. If you want to be really cheap though then you can always go with a 9500GT, which is just a die shrunk and faster clocked 8600GT. Still looks very weak compared to the Radeon 4670 though.
Yeah, the radeon 4670 trounces all of the above, except the 9600GSO, which it's very close to, but consumes ~20 watts less (which could easily be the difference between you having enough power and not having enough power). I'd go with the 4670 (I have one).
