i want to but a mainstream card for my friend which has good price performance ratio. i took two options palit x1950gt super 512mb 256bit and dx10 card xfx 8600gt, both costs me around Rs.8000 - Rs.9000 i.e $175-$190 in my place. which one should i go for at the given price or is there a good substitute for both? n i dont think the performance of new dx10 cards is that good as i saw in many reviews, any idea of how dx10 cards of amd/ati would perform? im sory, its not pro super,its palit x1950 GT SUPER.
