considering your monitor size, it would indeed be pointless to get a 8800GT 512 or better.

Here's one. Typo I meant 19 FPS. Nonetheless that link has similar results. The 512 version has better marks @16xAA than the 256 with no AA.

That XFX 8800GS looks like a good deal, and if you don't have COD4, all the more reason to buy it.

The 8800GS's 192bit memory bus was made for monitors like yours.

That's because whoever ran that benchmark had 16x Anisotropic filtering on.

Irrelevant benchmark and we are talking about 8800 GS vs 8800 GT 256.
However, I think the big issue is what your max resolution is. Do you know?
Oh, also, I have benchmarks of my current EVGA 256 MB rig, but everything is held back by my motherboard. However, here they are:

This is a list of computers with dual-core amd CPU's, running XP, any drivers allowed, and 8800 GS:
Here is the same exact thing, except 8800 GT 256 MB replaces.

They clearly are higher on average, and the one system which beats 8800 GT is the one with a significantly higher-clocked processor than all the rest.

EVGA 9600gt for $150 + S/H
EVGA 8800gs SuperClocked for $110 after $30MIR + Free S/H

Personally, I'd go for the 8800gs, especially at your resolution... Really the best price/performance offering for 1280x1024 and less resolutions.

Here's a decent review that compares 3870 -> 8800gt -> 9600gt -> 8800gs,

After all that, I am still really unsure of where the 8800GS sits on the market. It never performs as fast as the 8800GT which is what you would expect, but it scores around the same as the 9600GT, sometimes coming out ahead, and sometimes losing to it. For the most part it’s able to beat out the HD 3870 though.
-EDIT-

New recommendation,

Palit 9600gt Sonic for $144.99 - $25MIR = $119.99 + S/H

Specs:

Core : 700Mhz
Shader : 1750Mhz
Memory : 2000Mhz
3 Phase power distribution system vice the 9600gt's standard 2 phase.

Ports:

2x DVI
1x HDMI
1x DisplayPort

http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1257&pageID=4698

For $119.99 after $20MIR + S/H this is by far the best price/performance/features card (IMHO).

In my first quoted post, I X2'd on getting the GS. I was basically saying I'd get a 512 over the 265(since it's alot weaker) so just rule out the 256 and op for the GS. The benchmark was relevant since the op asked for it...........I have the 256 Gt and if I did it all over again I'd spend the extra money for the 512 or get the GS. This card doesn't like AA and I do....
