Would a Biostar GeForce 7600GS 512 MB be a good deal for $50 used?
Should I get something new, like a Sapphire, for $100?

Hmm I didn't know Biostar makes video cards. Anyways their motherboards aren't that good so I assume it would be the same here. You can find an 8600Gt under 100 dollars which is better in performance and is new.

What kind of 8600Gt would you recommend?
Would this be a good deal?

And what about this card?
$70

vs. this card
$80
http://www.xfxforce....ationId=1062920

I can't seem to tell the difference! Its the same card, isn't it?

Yes that is probably the best one you can find. If you can increase your budget you can find better cards that outperform that one, but if you don't care much about games and all that its more than sufficient.

I want to play games, granted that I don't have any, and I don't plan on getting Crysis.
What about the Sapphire Series?

Is this better?

That is definitely not better I would just go with the 8600Gt if that is your budget since it is the best in that range.

Okay, but how do I know which 8600GT to buy?
I'm not an expert. Sorry.

The 1st and 2nd one that you suggested are the same the XXX edition is a bit faster than the 3rd one you mentioned which is the normal. Just go with the 1st one that you listed it is the best one.

The XXX edition is basically factory over clocked..

if you don't know how to OC yourself, then get the XXX but if you do, just pick up a normal one and pimp it yourself XD

The normal one is actually more expensive than the XXX version, lol.
