I would still look at buying a 4850 Ati card (recently came out) as it would be around the same price as the 8800 series but a better performer. The 4850 Ati card is like a 9800 GTX only $100 - $200 cheaper.
Different story though if you are looking to go SLi in the future as you have a nvidia chipset. But if you plan on just getting one card you can't beat the 4850
the 4850 and the 9800GTX are actually around the same price point and perform about the same. The GTX is an average top performer though. Also the 640mb gts you looked at is out of date, and overly expensive. The 8800gt you picked out is a 256mb version, and you'd be better off saving money and getting a 3850 as they would perform around the same. Also the GTS 512mb is a solid choice, but with the GTX being in some cases cheaper, the 9800GTX is the better buy.
