OK i'm using a 20" monitor with 1600 x 1080 resolutions and i'm after updating my GC from a 7900GTO.

I've decided on a 8800 series but unsure what to get. As i'm only at 1600 x 1080 res will i really see a difference with a GTX over a GT.

I can pick up the following:

512mb GT OC £150
512mb GTS £170
768mb GTX £210

I will be keeping the card for a few years so what would you peeps advise ?

At the prices i would get the GTS. As you plan to keep it for some time it will see you slightly further in to the future than the GT. I dont really see you needing or using the full potential of the GTX at that res.

Well I'd suggest the 8800 GT or GTS since they use the G92. Also the GTS is more powerful than the GTX in most benchmarks. Also the GTX is now discontinued, so I would either wait and see if goes down in price or just get the GTS. also the GTS consumes less since its 65 nm:0

GTS has better performance at you res

Yes the GTS is perfect for 1680x1050 and even 1920x1200 but no higher. If you got an 8800GTX 768MB, you'd never use up all that VRAM in the 768MB 8800GTX. The 8800GT cools horribly, should have never been releast with that cooler!

GTS has much better cooling and doesn't consume near as much power as the GTX. The GT with stock cooling can get pretty hot. My rule is to get the GTS unless you want to save some money. Then I alway recommend the GT with a nonstock cooler. MSI makes a good one.
