    How much have you got to spend? Good value picks nowadays are the HD2600XT, HD3850, HD3870 and the 8800GT. The up and coming HD3870X2 is looking promising too.

    You'd certainly be better off getting one fast card like the 8800 rather than two 8600s. A pair of 8600s can not keep up with the 8800GT in most games.

    DVI, all the way. S-Video is limited to standard tv resolution!
