Well I found an ALPHA DOG GTS here locally for 230 bucks has same core clock speed as the one I linked already in post. But I probably will just buy the MSI for an extra 15 bucks if I get a sound card too. But anyone know if the sound card I listed is better to buy than the one recommended?

I think the other guy was trying to save me money, but I am not that up tight =) If I will get something more out of the slightly more expensive gamer card.

And thanks for replies I am sold on the GTS so far.

I mainly play oblivion and MTW2 and so I want to really get those games running smooth.

Audio is not a big hangup for gaming regardless of what people say. I recently tested the proposition on my gaming machine in my spec. Using integrated audio vs the audigy 2zs platimnum. 3DMark06 sdore didn't budge but 2 points down. Not worth even worrying about. Just go for a good sound card like the one I suggested.
