Ok what do you think? i can get the 8800 gs for a cheap price of £60, while the gt is going for £120 , so is it work getting the gt? considering i will be playing at 720p-1280 by 720.

Wow, At half the price it's an excellent option, especially for your 12x7 resolution. But it is not almost equal with the 8800GT at higher resolution and or with fsaa enabled. It is about equal to the 9600GT maybe a tad better without fsaa and worse with fsaa. Anyway, I have one of each and for your res and those prices the 8800GS looks like the winner IMO.

Here I rank a couple of GPUs
8800GTX,8800Ultra
8800GT512,8800GTS 512
8800GS640,9600GT
8800Gs
8800GT256,8800GTS320
7950GX2
7800GTX,7900GTX
As you can see 8800GS is still a powerful chipset
I suggest you to get GS and save some money.
