that is a **** good price. I would go for it. Well, idk. The performance boost for a GTS 512 is huge...

It is really up to you, if you are on a tight budget, then that card is about the same performance as the 640mb, and that is a good price. It should hold you over for a while, but its whatever you feel like spending. You wont regret dumping a little extra cash on a GT or GTS 512. g92 is fasttt

Yeah good deal on the 8800gts, and if you oc your 3200+ and the card itself you can get even more performance.
