leaning toward the second...
nVidia generally recommends at least a 750W PSU for 8800GTX in SLI. You can check out a PSU list they provide at SLI Zone.

I would recommend a PSU with at least 50+ Amps total on the 12V Rail(s). The second PSU you have listed would work nicely for GTX SLI.

For a single GTX, the first PSU you linked to would work great. PC P&C make great PSU's.

Corsair makes great power supplies as well.
For a single GTX: Corsair 650TX
For GTX SLI: Corsair 750TX

Those are just a few suggestions.

This is likely due to the increased memory capacity and bandwidth the 8800GTX still has over the 9800GTX/8800GTS (786MB/384-bit as opposed to 512MB/256-bit). The 9800GTX and 8800GTS G92 both use the newer, revised G92 core (opposed to the G80). Subsequently, the 8800GTX usually loses in performance tests at lower resolutions or when AA/AF isn't used.

The 9800GTX is a slightly higher clocked 8800GTS G92 (and is usually capable of a higher max overclocks). That's it. Expreview has proven the 9800GTX performs less than 5% better, on average, than the 8800GTS G92. (Both using nVidia reference designs.)


As for price-to-performance; the 8800GTS G92 usually trumps the other two, hands-down. Keep in mind all three cards do perform relatively similar.

General (low-end) prices ATM:
8800GTS G92 ~$225
9800GTX ~$300
8800GTX: They're becoming scare. There are sometimes deals floating around for ~$350 after MIR.
Yep. All thanks to the 768mb of Gddr3 and the wide 384-bit bus something that without it it wouldnt be faster!

Don't hate, the 8800gtx is a one of a kind even a couple generations later.

No offense, but with the way you've written that, I'm not even sure what you're attempting to say.
