Default Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT 1gb (overclocked) vs Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 250 512MB

Im going purchase a new computer system, I have the option of choosing one of these graphics card but I'm puzzled. I'm looking to use it for gaming and multimedia (HD Movies)

After watching countless videos and browsing like a maniac I still have no idea which one is better

I need help?

Do you mean 9800gt vs gts 250?

If so then the gts 250 is better since its basically a newer 9800gtx+.

Yeah, gts 250, but you should build your own rig. It isn't hard and you can get the same rig for less money or a better rig for the same cost.

PC World? How good are they?
Also, two more:
Scan
Dabs
Two great sites, Scan is probably my favourite UK site for electronics.
