8600GT 512mb upgrade

Hi

My buddy wants to upgrade his 8600 he is bit on a budget €100 to be exact.
He was looking at the 9800GT but the card is discontinued and we cant find it anywhere.

I was looking at the Asus 5570 1GB. I have read some reviews stating its a good card but im not sure if its better than the 8600GT
He is playing mostly BF BC.

or is there other GC you would recommend

Thanks in advance :sol:

  1. Going from 8600gt to 9800gt would be a good upgrade. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-460-radeon-hd-5570-gaming,2697-7.html
    It is recommended to go up 3 tiers in the link for noticeable difference.
    It is hard to recommend cards without full system specs and monitor resolution.

    Yes the 9800GT will give a nice boost over a 8600GT. But we need mobo, cpu and psu specs.
  3. We live in south africa the 9800GT has been discontinued here so thats what i need to find a replacement card for him. Thats why i was looking at the Asus 5570 1GB, it looks like a decent card and its in his budget.

    Ill try and get the specs

    Can't he get a HD 5670? (5670~9800GT, but cooler, has DX11 and eats less power)
