The 9500GT is probably closest in performance. Its like an overclocked 8600GTS. Better idea would be to set a budget and then get the best card you can for XXX money.

A 9500GT is faster and uses a little less power than the 8600GT. It's basically the same thing with a die shrink of course. If you're looking for a cheap gaming card though then perhaps you should be looking at a Radeon 4850 (they are $90 now), or if you have a weak PSU a 5670.
