I agree with you DJ-Chris, unfortunately I couldn't find both cards on the same site. 99% of all statistics are made up :-). I also know that he asked for a good gaming card, not the the best or most expensive. I play top games but I also do other things with my computer and a lot of the bleading edge graphics cards come with decibels that would shame a helicopter.

Actually, anymore the games drive the cards...today's games are even taxing on the latest and greatest video cards at max settings. It wasn't that way a few years ago.

It comes to something when your card costs more than your monitor. As a monitor normally lasts longer, I decided to buy my ViewSonic and the 800XL. Mind you, even £220 is too much for a graphics card if you ask me.
