You should also state your power supply specifications.

I would say you would be making a good choice with the Palit you mentioned originally. 2GB is not necessary, but it doesn't hurt.

well i was also wondering about going for the 2gb @ 700mhz or get a 1gb @800mhz not much in price difference but no idea of having more GB or Mhz is better

Technically, more GB is better, but only slightly, just a couple/few fps. For more Mhz, you can always overclock yourself. 800mhz is a pretty high factory overclock, and generally, the card maker uses higher quality components to ensure that the card is stable. So in conclusion, get the 1gb @ 800mhz.

Agreed, get the 1gb 800Mhz card. But also check for reviews and opinions from owners about it.
