I can't tell you what to get as I don't know a ton and I don't know the rest of your specs. However EVERYONE keeps on talking about the EVGA and how it's a good Video Card. Invest a few more bucks and get the 8800GT. I'm waiting for it to come in stock tomorrow.

Other specs would be helpful.......... psu??

The 8800gt is by far your best bet if you can spring to the cost but I would get this version and overclock
