Hi guys,

I'm helping build a new system for a friend and we need a graphics card. I've never built a system before so not sure how to compare parts and so I was hoping you guys could help me out here. ;)


I have three cards I'm interested in at the moment:


GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB £70.49

GeForce 9600 GT 512MB £74.01

GeForce 8800 GS 384MB £45.90


Can someone help me figure out which is the most powerful out of the three (maybe an order) and also separately which is the most OSx86 compatible (or at least OSx86 compatible).


I really appreciate this people.

not for osx86 ;)

That's what it seemed like from the HCL but couldn't be sure. So I guess the 9600 GT is a no go for OSx86 but otherwise it's better than the 8600 GTS?


Also I've read in a few sites that the 8800 GS is better than the 8600 GTS. I found this hard to believe because of the large price difference. Does anyone know if this is the case?
