VF900 doesn't fit the 8 series cards, and you should think about oc'ing your cpu, or it will really bottleneck your 8800

as for having a 8800GTS 320mb, they will be good, but a 640mb would really be a much better investment

I never tried overclocking my CPU so I don;t really know how to. Also the 640MB one costs like 110 euro more than the 320 which my budget hardly allows me to buy. I wanted to ask one more thing. WHen someoen says bottleneck when does it actually means? It means the system will not function properly or the 8800 will not be able to give its full power?

practically it will work fine, it just will be slower - the cpu isn't fast enough for the 8800

just get the 8800 320mb if you cannot afford the 640mb
