So I'm keeping my Q6600 Quad Core and upgrading from an 8800G for 3D Vision.

Do I go:

XFX GTX 275 ~1GB
Gainward GTX 275 OC ~ 2GB

or just save cash and go GTX 260?

Also, what type of biscuit is best with hot chocolate?

+1 XFX GTX 275 1gb

The 2gb model is just a marketing gimmick. There are benchmarks here on Tom's showing little to no gains with a 2gb card vs a 1gb card.

Maybe someone else will chime in with your biscuit/hot chocolate issue :) .

Uh huh just been also doing the reading thing (SHOCK HORREUR) and seemingly just throwing RAM at something doesn't always make things faster (SHICK HORREUR x 2). Now tho I've found the MSI N275GTX Lightning ... and now I'm thinking... hmm... apres Christmas, no films... less obvious that the box arriving is actually for me... other half not angry... RESULT... Now STOCK is the issue...!!
