Definitely the 8800GTS, but how are you getting it for free?

I would probably choose the XFX, because they're warranty has been improving, and it's great for gaming. I'm not sure about the 2900XT. I'm sure it's really good, since the release of the latest drivers, but the power consumption.

The 2900 utilizes a higher memory throughput, even though it has 128MB less memory. Also, the 2900 equals or exceeds the 8800GTS, but still has headroom to improve as ATI/AMD improves their drivers.

A word of caution... I ban without warning or remorse for spamming the forums.
