No offense, but thats a rather retarded question. If you dont consider yourself a "hardcore gamer", why buy the absolute top of the line vid card?

Also, I dunno where the heck youre shopping, but the price difference in those cards should only be ~$200.

I say go for the middle and buy a nice 9800Pro. Theyre dirt cheap right now (compared to 3 months ago).

System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

My penis is bigger than yours.
