    Hi

    I'm trying to decide which graphics card to get. It's between this cheaper "Xpertvision 8500GT Sonic edition 256MB 128bit DDR3 DVI TVO PCI-E":
    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...hvd19wcm9kdWN0X3Jldmlld3M=&product_uid=128084


    Or for £25 more I can get this "Inno3D 8600GT 256MB 128bit DDR3 DVI PCI-E Graphics Card":
    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...hvd19wcm9kdWN0X3Jldmlld3M=&product_uid=126974



    Both are directx10 and 256mb of ddr3, the Xpertvision one is £50 but has the 8500GT chipset and comes overclocked. The Inno3D one is £76 but has the 8600GT chipset. Seems to me like the Xpertvision is a real bargain but would it be worth me paying the extra £25 for the 8600GT chipset?

    the 85gt is not as good for games, the 86gt is more for gaming.

    buy which suits your needs.

    I would like to be able to play games better (which I guess means everything else will run better too) so I think I'll go for the 8600GT.

    Thanks.

    Based on the hardware specs, the 8600GT will be a significantly better gaming card.
