What are the ones that you want. Will you game? Will you do 3d stuff?

I will mainly be playing newer games like Typhoon Rising, and any other new games that are system hogs....I also do some Photoshop work. I wanna spend under 200. I found the GeForce FX 5700 256mb DDR for 169 shipped.

9800pro

256meg=275$
128meg=225$

i think the 256 will serve you well in the future but 128 is sufficient for all games currently out

I'd save up for the 9800 pro 256MB but if you want it now the 128 MB should handle all the games now and in the near future.
