9800gtx is what im getting im ordering the xfx card, they have always been my favorite manufacturer, and customer service is great with them. also there modder friendly, with evga you void your warranty changing heatsink, and over clocking, with xfx you can oc change ur heatsink and they wont turn you down, on an rma.

also the 8800gts for 200$ is msi, i dont like msi personaly i try to stay with the big 3 xfx evga and bfg.

Look like about a 8 frame per second increase on average over the 8800GTS 512MB.....Gaming performance looks ok to me...plus cooler and less power
