8600GT for price, or GTS for a little more money.

Yeah, 8600gt is good, and if you dont really care about DX10, the 7900gs or gt is about equal with it.

i'll be using it most for gameing, 8600 gt has dx10 so i guess thats a better buy then , better than getting a graphics card that supports dx10. and i actually was looking at other graphics cards to instead of the ones above , which do you think is good?

-gf 8600 gts sc 512mb
or
-gf 8800 gts 320mb

the 8800 320 is better, but it really depends on what resolutions you play at.

No way. The 7900 series would rip apart the 8600GT. The 8600GT is about the speed of a 7600GT, just with DirectX 10.
