just take which one is the cheapest (including shipping) because you can overclock it yourself

don't remember lol


EDIT:

Newegg.com - CHAINTECH GSE88GT GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail Chaintech has the cheapest one with and without MIR (tied with 3 other ones with the MIR) but I think the 8800gt MSI has the most value, custom cooler, free game, why not!!

meh, like vern said just get the cheapest thing you can find (well look at warranties) galaxy has good cooling and oc's well so take a look at them also (their 8800gt doesn't look very nice though)

Okay, I am siding with the MSI, I'll just overclock thereafter. Now last for the PSU, do I get the Corsair 520HX or the PC Power & Cooling 610?

both are good PSU's, the PC Power & Cooling 610 is better (by only a little bit) but for some reason Newegg is selling the PC Power & Cooling 610 for really cheap $100 (cheaper than the Corsair 520hx), so pick that up instead

the 520hx would do fine, if u intend to go sli in the future or upgrade anything else it might be a good idea to have some head room with the 610.

they are both great, as vern said. so go with what is cheaper.

and you have plenty of headroom to do SLI in the future if you have the 520 btw, so whatever is cheaper. or whatever you like the look of
