Zotac 8600GT VGA

Today is the day I buy myself a new VGA for my PC. I've done a lot of research and finally I decided that the 8600GT is the card for me. Good performance, DX10 support, HDMi, and highly overclockable too. And ofcourse, fits my budget :) !

I still have contacts in Dubai from my previous job, I sent an email and I found out that I can get almost the same card in Dubai for 70% of the price. But sadly I have no way of delivering it to Libya now. Should I wait till someone I know goes to Dubai? I don't know when that will be. This is a hard decision, I can wait, but I'd really like to play my games now. Oh well, Today I'll go to Zarqaa El-Yamama and see if I can persuade the shop owner / salesman to give me a discount. If he gives me a 15% discount then I'll walk out with the card in my hands :)

I'll post a few pics of the card I'm talking about, just for fellow hardware freaks :

Thanks to www.vr-zone.com for their great review of 8600GT cards, and for these pics.
