Cheap DX10 Graphics or 7600GT ?

I was about to buy a 7600gt to keep an old system going, I was going to get this one:


But then I stumbled across some cheap cards with DX10 support apparently. I thought they were still very pricey but these are cheap, I'll post the links to a few here. Are these cards rubbish but support dx10? Would it be better to get the 7600gt or to go for one of these dx10 cards? Looks like these cheap dx10 ones don't have ddr3 memory.






There's 5 of them there, the top one is the cheapest, the bottom the most expensive, I'm particulary interested in this bottom one since it has ddr3 memory. Would this be a better buy than the 7600gt?


PS: Just found this one on ebay, bought a galaxy 7600gt before and was nice, this one is oc'd by galaxy too:

EDIT:Just clicked on a couple of these links now and they bought me to the wrong pages on ebuyer.

They do work but you might have to click on each link twice, or open ebuyer.co.uk in a tab and open these in a seperate tab.

Sorry bout that, don't really know why.

not from that part of the world, so I cant do price translation that would be meaningful.

couple of thoughts:

dx10 is only for Vista and will not be released for xp.

given that, they will still provide a performance improvement.

Looking at this guide: http://www.tomshardw...e6.html#summary
If you can afford the 8600, that is what I would choose. If not, then go with the 7600. Skip the 8500 all together.
