Neither... you'd be better off spending a little more and getting the 8800GTS 320mb, or spending a lot less and getting the 7900GS/x1950PRO.

Oh man, either of those would be a giant rippoff right now. As has been said, the X1950XT for $200 AR will spank them. And if you are willing to spend $270, a 320MB 8800GTS would be a jump above that. Also, priced right a 7900GS, X1900GT or X1950 pro could also offer great bang for the buck if you want to save money.


Great sub $300 cards for the money, starting with the best:

evga 8800GTS 320MB $260 AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

His iceQ X1950XT Turbo $200 AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Sapphire X1950 pro $145 AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Sapphire X1900GT $130 no rebates
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And equal card to the above if you want NV - 7900GS $135 AR

Any of these are a great buy right now and offer a ton more bang for the buck than what you listed. To be honest bargains like these get me half giddy; it's a great time to buy a $130-260 card. I already own the first two, and would buy a couple of the others in a second if I had money to blow or a need for them. The first two are easily better than the ones you listed and the last three aren't far behind what you listed. Grab the best you can or are willing to afford.

The evga I linked up above is $20 cheaper even. And yeah, if he even considered a $270 7950GT, then a $260 8800GTS seems the obvious within budget choice.

Just make sure you have a viable power supply to cover most of these video cards. Not sure what setup your putting this in, but it would suck hard if you bought a high end 8800GTS and your power supply couldn't handle it! Let along having the room in your case. Just take that into consideration, which you may have already done. :)

At $285, you might as well get the 8800GTS 320Mb ($300) as the other mentioned. This card performs, base on the reviews, just like the 8800GTS 640Mb ($400) at 1280x1024 resolution. Plus it's a DX10 card ready so you should be good for many months to come for the graphics performance. But if you must choose between the two, then I'd say the cheapest one. Save money that way and not much performance difference and to mention it would be outdated by next year when good games comes in DX10 package. The X1950s are also great choice for you price range.

Crysis i think it is over bloated .

It should run at decent settings on a decent resolution .

I have a funny feeling that Crysis will run on most sytems .

:D  plus I got 2000$ lying in the bank as backup hehehe.

Forget Crysis, but ther'll be a wave of DX10 games soon and you'll be sorry for not getting 8800 series...
