Now my question is, which would i be better off getting for my sig rig?
Keep in mind I'm not going ATI, if you have any reccomendations, that are other nvidia cards I'll consider my price range is under 200$.

My goodness, you can get a 9800GTX+ (GTS 250 equivalent) for $85 after MIR. Why would you pay $140 for a 9800GT?

GTS250 is almost the same as an 8800GT tho...

I'd look for a GTX260 216 at least.

Microcenter has the GTX275 for 200, although the one near me is out of stock.

Okay... for starters, the 9800GT is a re-branded 8800GT and the 9800GT has a 256-bit bus, not 224-bit bus. 224-bit doesn't exist.

Lastly, get a used GTX260. It's plenty powerful for whatever you want to do.
