Default New vid card

I RMAed my video card and was offered a refund of my money or an item of equal value and I payed $171 for my Radeon X1900GT. Any ideas on a new card?

The 8600GT is an awesome card,so the GTS will be Uber-awesome

EDIT;It's also pretty cheap off ebay

Also was looking at this http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814161093 would it be better or worse than the 8600 GTS?

Worse, def. Get a DX10 card. I would go with the 8600GTS, unless you want to shell out a bit more, $280, for an 8800
