8800GTS 512MB > 8800GT 512MB > 9600GT > 8800GTS 320/640MB

seeing as how he isn't using us currency then either he's legally insane or from a different country.

and go for a 512gts, loads better then the 320/640mb versions.

Depending on the deal you may find I would consider the 8800gts.. At the time i got my 8800gt the 8800gts was way to expensive.
