Dude I m still using a 8600GT 512MB GDDR2, anything other then GDDR2 sounds sexy to me. In all honesty, I m probably going to get the 3870 GDDR4. Plain and simple, it'll be nice to have a card that has memory operating at crazy speeds

Gosh, you think you've got it bad...
5600XT.... FX series


,but yes.
It isn't the best time to buy nvidia as the new cards are coming.
Wait about a month, there should be some price drops.
Not dramatically, but something.

Oh and shirtbird.
512GTS > 9600gt and 8800gt

I'd recommend an 8800gt over a 9600gt and HD3870.

That's just imho.

and I have a FX 5200...

on the shelf, in my rig I got a AGP radeon pro 2600...

Anyways have you decided what you are going to get for your video card? the 8800GT is a great card and you can find it for almost $160 in places but you may want to get an aftermarket cooler.
