Default Compare these Video Cards, please

I've got these two cards - one is $199 and one is $217, but I can't see much difference between them. Could you compare for me? Thankyou.

Inno3D GF 8600GTS:

eVGA e-GeForce 8600GTS:

Thanks

I agree, and I wanted to get the eVGA but it turns out the shop has kept away the Inno3D for me for a month or so and for some reason I wasn't notified. And every dollar is precious to me at the moment. Is there any difference technically?

They are essentially the same card specification and performance wise.

eVGA. I've been using them for years, not once have I been let down.

In this case, considering the shop has already put this card aside from me (and they need to order in the eVGA) and it's a fair bit cheaper, I will go with the Inno3D. I know that eVGA has better support, though.

in that price range you can pick up an ATI 512MB 3850, that will kill the 8600

They're all PCI-E 2.0. 'Fraid it's already ordered.

By the way, why are there some 8600GT's half the price of the GTS? Isn't the GTS supposed to be worse?

no the 8600 GTS is faster the the 8600 GT
well yea the ati 3850 is better but its not really worth it(put a bit more cash for a 8800GT)
but since you orederd it,
anyway the 8600 GTS is a pretty good card. i personally have 2 of them on my other rig and works fine
