Just about anything is better than the 8500GT...lol.

Of the 2 choices given, the GTX 260-216 is the better card. Make sure you have a decent power supply with loads of amperage on the +12v rail. The 260 requires two 6-pin PCIe plugs, meaning it can potentially draw up to 225W...the majority of that coming from the +12v.
