i was looking at my motherboard i ordered and i was thinking the southbridge chipset seems a bit close to the pcie slot like its almost under it.

thats the card and i wanna get a 8800gts but now im pissed and im worrying i spent money on that mobo and the card wont even fit. also if it does fit im trying to decide to get the 8800gts with 320mb of ram or 640mb ram

if you plan on keeping those monitors/resolutions for a while.
then go for the 320mb version.

if you can afford it go for the 640mb one.

You can run 1600x1200 with the 320 but for around 70 to 80 bucks more get the 640 :wink:

but i need a new psu so the money i save on the memory would go towards psu and would it really make that much of a difference in frame rate
