8800GTS 512MB
9800GTX 512MB

i'll be running a 24" monitor at 1920x1200 resolution and would not be using SLI. so which will be better?

the third option would be a

8800GT 1GB

which actually cost LESS than the 2 above.

whats the '+' and '-' of these cards?

thanks
I'd choose the fourth one, tAKING a girl out to dinner and then to a hotel.

If the 8800GTS is more than ~40 less than the 9800GTX, go with it (they're essentially the same card)- Otherwise, the 9800GTX is probably worth it for the higher clock speeds, tri-sli etc.

9800GTX, I'd recommend SLI, but if you can't go SLI. IMHO, I'd recommend a 4870.

get the 9800GTX...it overclocks well and in SLI they scale pretty well. but the card runs nicely just by its self also
