Well, I game at 1680 x 1050, 90FPS average on COD4 with everything pegged. I play Crysis at 1680 x 1050 with a mixture of medium and high advanced settings with FPS between 25 - 50 (Crysis...). Also Oblivion with most of the sliders all the way up and Qarl's texture pack I average in the 50-60s outside and higher inside.

The only thing about the GTS G80 that sucks, and you are no doubt aware of this, is that it doesn't OC worth a crap.

huh?

My card overclocks pretty decently (685MHz Core, 1134MHz Mem(!!))

Agreed, I probably was very lucky, since that memory overclock is insane.

Well, I can't get either card to better than what I have in my sig, and that OC is my benching OC only, I game at 630/930 approximately. I have great temps (never above 60 C on either card), but if game for more than an hour with my sig OC it locks up in a lovely display of rainbow colors.

Well you could upgrade your PSU which would be a good choice for your future setup that's got a 12V rail combinded to 52A.

Is your GPU doing ok with all game you have? If so, I will stay with what you have or go for G92 8800GTS (sell your 320).

The thing that worries me (and leads me to think I need a different card) is that with higher settings in WIC, at the top it would say VRAM Overload..so I would rather get a 512MB card and be safe.

Mine overclocks decently...had it at 5 clocks higher on each thing...but then had to lower because it wouldn't support the clocks any more..GPU max temp is probably 70C, usually around 67C in COD4.

Yes, you are very lucky.

Kind of hijacking a little (its related to the same thing so..), but how much are GTS 320s selling for on average?
