Well, if you want to spent a little above 6k, then here are two of the better choices:
GeForce PCX 8600GT 512MB (128-BITS) DDRII - 7300rs
ATI PCX 2600 XT HD256MB iFAN 128BITS DDR III - 6500rs
If not, then my recommendation remains the same as ago:
GeForce 8500GT 1GB (128-BITS) DDR-II for 5.5k
ATI PCX 2600 PRO 512MB 128BITS DDRII for 6k
By the way, if you are able to find a 8600GT of MSI rather than XFX and Inno3d, it will be slightly cheaper.
The 1GB 8500GT is not a good choice. With only a 128 bit interface, it can only use 256mb, so you are better of with a cheaper 256mb one. There wont be any difference in performance since the 1GB card wont be able to use the extra memory… You would have to be a fool to buy a 1GB card with only 128 bit interface, heck even 512mb with 128 bit interface is stupid. Just get a 256mb card.
And same goes for the 2600PRO, just get a 256mb one.
As for my suggestion, I would have to agree with jack. Get the His sapphire ATI PCX 2600 XT HD 256MB iFAN 128BITS DDR III for rs. 6500. but the cards listed by Asad_N aren’t bad either but get 256mb ones. All of these cards will have almost the same performance…
