Hey guys! old 8800gt died, and im about to buy a new GFX. Which one should I go for?

Also, is my corsair 750w psu enough for my build?


Thank you all for your input!!

If you don't mind a triple slot cooler, then go for the Asus Direct CUII

Your PSU is enough. They both have non refrence PCB's. I would go with the asus because it looks like it would be cooler.

Thats what I think too but I was hoping for someone to bring in some numbers or benchmarks. I havent found a comparison of the cards and benchmarks in different environments are too confusing.
