The G92 8800GTS is about 10% faster than the 8800GT. Is it worth the extra $$$? That's for you to decide.

No, get the GTS 512MB if you can afford it.

If I were in the market for a vid card i would go for an EVGA myself...$214 after mail in on the one you picked you cant go wrong.

Here's $159.99 after mir, for the same g92 8800gts. It only has 3 year warranty instead of lifetime, but it's $55 less. Besides, it'll be long obsolete after 3 years anyway.

why not get a 8800GT and overclock it, you could probley get it as high as the GTS, the only way its not going to be as good is it dosnt hae as many stream proc's 112 vs 128

Because it comes with only a single slot cooler, thus causing heat problems on oc. Plus the chip is lower binned, thus, do not oc as high. Some 8800gt do not oc at all. Chances of getting a bad apple is low, but some do get it. Gts version with higher binned chips are garaunteed to oc to at least 750mhz stable. There is only a $10-$30 difference. Not worth it.
