For 1680x1050, I think the GTX will be useful... especially if it's only about a 50 dollar price loss.

For that resolution the GTX is probably your best bet...although if it were me I'd get the GTS and clock the bajeezuz out of it

Well, I offered the guy with the GTX a straight up trade for his used GTX vs my new and sealed GTS, or $350 cash instead of the $380 asking price (assuming the guy who offered me $350 is still interested)

Will keep you guys updated.
