Default Vid card charts

Anyone have a link to or know how much of an upgrade going from an 8800GT to something new would be?

From looking at stuff I could find the GTX 260's 285s and 295s and the HD4870's and 4870x2s didn't seem like much of a speed increase, especially considering the ridiculous power draw those dual GPU cards have.

Graphics card Rankings

Those GPUs you listed would all be a great speed increase. Personally, depending on your resolution and such, I'd either get a 4870 1gb, or a GTX 285...the 285 being loads better of course.
