My Choices are as follows:

9800GTX 512MB
8800GTS(G92) 512MB
8800GT 512MB

Either one of those for a resolution of 1680 by 1050. Especially for CS:Source ( Looking to NEVER go below 100fps on ALL maps ( inferno, nuke, train, etc ) especially in firefights/nades/smoke everything )

Your monitor can't display anything over 60, so why do you want 100?

All those cards will do it with ease, either way...

Get an 8800 GTS or 9800 GTX. If you can, wait a couple more days and see how the GTX performs once a few OCN members (or other sites) get there hands on it.

The 8800 GTS is the best option, mainly because that's basically what a 9800GX2 is, an 8800 GTS x2 on a PCB. So i'd go with that, OR, if you're gonna shed out a few extra bucks go with a 9800GTX, or wait until some benchies come out for that thing.

My motherboard from dfi doesnt handle SLI, so. Looking at the step up program, its $20 less for the 9800GTX then the 8800GTS

I vote 8800GTS G92. The 8800GT step-up would be a waste considering it's the same performance as the 9600GT.

It's just an overpriced, and larger, version of a 8800gts g92. No reason to get one.
