    Alright, well after getting screwed out of some of my money, (Surprise bills, yay) my budget has been knocked down to 200$
    I was going to get an 8800 G92 Version but Its a little out of my range. I could wait for an open box one to be available on newegg but I'm not so sure about those.
    I could also wait 2 weeks and get a G92 but I dont want to wait that long, lol.

    Anyways...

    I have this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150258
    and
    Was looking into this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130082

    Its 50 dollars under the 200$ budget but anything above that card for under 200 doesnt seem much better... Unless someone can point out a card :D
    Also my 8600 seems almost the same to that 8800 with a little more Memory Clock and Core Clock with a little less memory size and interface. Just thought I'd point that out.

    So any suggestions anyone?

    Hi, I am myself searching for a new card and we have similar specs...According to my research until now:

    I would certainly look to this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102719

    This:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102715

    And this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150252

    Our CPU capabilities may not fully utilize the power of a 8800GTS or a Radeon HD 3870...Maybe it's better to look at the "smaller" cards of those series. I came across some interesting benchmarks and reviews, I 'll try to find them and post links.

    Keep in mind that ATI/AMD cards come cheaper while the performance decrease compared to NVIDIA alternatives is not that much. They also seem to be more energy and thermally efficient.

    EDIT: I did not see that you have O/C...I guess you could go for the "big" cards as well!
