I thought the 8800 GTS G92 was pretty much the 9800 GTX anyways?

Thats a funny thing to say since the stock 9800GTX has the about same performance as an stock 8800GTS. Not to mention the 9800GTX is slower clock for clock because if its looser memory timings. You will however get a higher somewhat better overclocking but thats about it.

Yep just go for the GTS. Its worth it. And I just bought two MSI GTS's from newegg for 209.99 a piece. Just checked and they are still this price. So thats totally worth it. These cards are pretty awesome. lol. I was coming from a G80 320mb card.

Rumor is the newer ati 4870 X2 is supposed to exceed the performance of nvidia's GTX 280. I'm not saying that you should go ATI, only that there might be some drastic price drops coming soon so if you can hold out, it might not be a bad idea. Another option is to buy the GT (EVGA), and then step up to the GTX 280 when it's available (but you'd have to time your purchase properly). Also, how soon are you hoping to upgrade?

Well to be honest, I don't do a whole lot of graphics intensive gaming during college, but during the summer I usually play quite a bit more with all the free time. I'll play the occasional game if I have it. So I guess I'm hoping to upgrade pretty soon.

I don't know if I'll really need the latest and greatest card. I made the mistake of forking out $500 for the ATI x850 when it first came out, and that thing is so far obsolete now...

I suppose if I go with the GTS it should last me a couple more years. If it doesn't I could always go SLi, even though I said that with my 7950 and I haven't had any complaints with it thus far. Unless the price drops are going to be in excess of $40 or $50, I think I will go with a used GTS, sell my 7950 and have a nice upgrade for about $80-$100.
