Over at HotHardware, you can catch a review of MSI’s 8600GT, a silently cooled 8600GTS from Gigabyte and MSI’s NX8500GT, all of which are under $200.  These are all contrasted against AMD’s 1950 Pro which is worth about the same to buy, but is only capable of DX9.  As the benchmarks show, unless you are desperate to try DX10, the older 1950 Pro will give you more bang for your buck.
“We’ve just posted an article at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, bundles, and performance of three mainstream GeForce 8 series cards, the MSI NX8600GT T2D256E, the Gigabyte GV-NX86S256H with Silent-Pipe III, and the MSI NX8500GT TD256E. All three of these cards fall within the sub-$200 price range, but they don’t perform at similar levels due to difference GPU and memory clock speeds. Head on over to the site and check them out, it’s interesting to see how these current DX10-class cards stack up to last-generation’s mainstream offerings”
