  1. 19" 1440x resolution.

    the GTX will take the lead when AA is activated. The 1gb on the 9800 is useless. the GTX+ is faster even more if you go for an SC or SSC version.

    For your res, the 9800gt 512 is enough. You only need the GTX if you want lots of candy.
  2. the GTX is faster.

    Especially on a 19 " monitor. Your resolution isn't large enough to warrent a whole gig of Vram.

    god luck bro!
  3. The HD4870 512mb never complained at 19×10 only higher then that res bigger and faster frame buffer is needed. 98gtx is actually a over kill at the resolution but better safe then sorry.
