Gainward Bliss 8600 GT PCX Golden Sample GLH Edition 256mb
The Gainward Bliss 8600 GT Golden Sample Goes Like Hell Edition is a decent performing 8600 GT with a nice set of outputs including HDMI and a decent heatsink that looks fantastic.
The trouble for the 8600 series is that ATI brought out the HD3850 which trounced Nvidia's lineup in that price bracket. The HD3850, however, is a little more money and generally comes in at over £100, whereas you should be able to pick up the Gainward 8600 GT PCX at a decent £80.48 at SCAN.
Komplett, one of our recommended retailers has the SilentFX version
at £70, albeit at a lot lower clock speeds.
It's unfortunate that the HD3850 is so close in price to the 8600 GT as this newer card really shows up the Nvidia mid range.
+ Excellent cooler
+ HDMI connecter with HDCP
+ Decent price
+ Awesome overclocking
+ Excellent output choice
* Good performance at 1368 x 768
- Performance not up to par with other cards close in price
