eVGA 8800GT or GTS G92. Yes it has to be eVGA because if at somepoint in the next 3 months you want something better, you can trade up to get it and they'll give you credit based on the exact amount you paid for that card. Also comes with Lifetime warranty that is still valid if you decide to remove the stock cooler and put on an aftermarket one and change the bios to an updated version of a different card. For instance, you can get an 8800GT Superclocked or KO (Try for the KO) and then put the SSC bios on it and bam you'll have yourself an 8800GT SSC for alot less than it costs to actually get that card. And it's still covered under warranty should anything go wrong so long as it's the bios from eVGA's website and not someone else's bios.
I would definitely factor warranty into whatever you plan on buying for a good video card.
The 790i boards are nice but remember they only take DDR3 memory...so be prepared to pay out the ass for it.
Just to give you an example
This should list in the lowest to highest priced.
