Need help for choosing graphic card

Hello, I want to buy a graphic card, because now I'm with onboard.

I'm thinking about this two:

ASUS Geforce 8600GT 512MB DDR3 with fan added;
Asus 9500gt 1gb DDR2 128Bit, almoust new, used in office just.

Price is almoust the same ~20 Euros.

So which one is better choise ?

Thanks, StalkeR.

Depends on the condition of the the 9500, but a 9500 is a 8600 with a shrunken die, so it uses a litlle less power.I would say get the 8600gt. Or even better try to get a 8800gt

The man whos solving 9500 said that is almoust new,as I said above also.
Im not sure because 9500 has more ram, but 8600 has ddr 3 ram.

Ddr3 is better and quicker then a ddr2, and any review,post or person will tell you that a 8600gt was the bees knees!

Edit: what the guy sais the condition is,and what it realy is may be 2 different things,just something to keep in mind

Yes, I know that DDR3 is much faster than DDR2. 8600 was also my opinion, so I'll contact the men and will see.

Thank you for answering. StalkeR.

Sorry, it's me again. That 8600 is maybe reserved for other member. So I want to ask now, what's better:

MSI NX8600GT 256MB DDR3 or that 9500GT from above?



EDIT:

I have choose 8600. I'll mark this as solved.

Good choice, a 8600 is better. And MSI has been around for over 30 years, so its a great brand too.
