6800GT best.

EDIT: psu will be a problem probably. if you cant spend over 220 dollars. 6800 and unlock the pipelines and OC

get a 6800GT as the price are dropping fast or save your pennys and buy a 7800GTX then youve got a nice card!!!

I got the 6800, the 6800GT would have been a card not suitable for my system.

Games still look awesome

thanks for the help guys
