    BFG GeForce 8600GT OC 512MB DDR3 PCI Express

    I am currently running a Geforce 6200 that doesn't play videos very well. I have a 775Dual-VSTA MB and I am sure the video card I am looking at will physically fit. I previously had a Geforce 8400 that worked great till it quit. Can't seem to find another. So it looks like this one
    (BFG Tech GeForce 8600GT OC 512MB DDR3 PCI Express) is my next best bet. My OS is Win XP.

    I would like to make sure this card will work before I buy it and then have to return it because it won't work as I have had trouble before with this.
    Thank You

    I wouldn't get any 8600 GPUs. There were a lot of problems reported for the 8600m GPU, so it would be really hard for me to trust the desktop version also.

    Just one example:
