Default Quick G-card Question

I'm planning on upgrading my Graphics card and was wondering. Which card do you think would be best suited for me.

I play alot of games, typically at resolutions of 1280x720 widescreen, Hardly ever bigger than that. I would like to beable to play future games at higher settings. My X1600 pro has lasted me for a year and I am very satisifed with it... even though its not the best card. So should i go with.

-XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 560MHZ 320MB 1.7GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E

Or

Wait and buy the 8600 Ultra
Shaders 64
Core 500
Memory MHZ 1400
Memory <512
Memory Buss 256bit

Which card would you choose and why?

i think your cpu will bottleneck the gts but idk
maybe the 8600 ultra and use the rest to save up for a new cpu

just my 2 cents

Well... I dont think that cpu will bottleneck to much... even tho the Pd's were not very good processors it will prolly be good enuff for gamin for a while... all though u may want to get another gig of ram... 2 gigs is important these days...

8800gts 320 should do u well at those resolutions
