If you could find a non superclocked version of the XFX, it would be cheaper. Don't need a superclocked, you can overclock it yourself.

But between those two, the XFX for sure.

Since money isn't a problem, I can suggest NVidia 9800GTX+,
works great, and it works in two modes if im right, it saves you money on your electricity bill when you arent gaming, and works perfect when you do play games. Around 45-50 fps on Crysis, and more than 200 fps on CSS is an example for you.

It's great!

All cards do that now Prison... Also 9800gtxs were replaced with 250gts, which are low end "performance" cards.
