We found out that Nvidia quietly lowered the prices of the 8600 GTS and GT cards and you can buy a reference clocked 8600GT for a mere €99. This will be a no name card and you can get it here.
If you are after brands Leadtek, Palit and Sparkle will have these cards for just over €101 and no more than €105. You can buy them here.
So the ATI HD 2600 generation is up for a mid range champion fight and it wont be easy.
