Default G80 Line question

Soon enough, i'll be buying a G80 line card, but I'm also wanting a new monitor, specifically, the 22" by Sceptre.

My question is: Would it be better to buy the 8600 Ultra (512 mb), or the 8800GTS 320mb?

Keep in mind, I don't care about uber benchmark score, I just want to be able to run games smoothly. Thanks

well it's not out yet. Plus, I was only joking. Since the title of this thread is "G80 Line question".
