    That's a good card. I'm sure you know it's PCI-E so your motherboard has to support it. Make sure you have a good quality PSU with plenty of power. has it even cheaper with a $15 rebate.

    Check Newegg too. Tiger Directs prices are usually higher than other stores.

    A 6800gt might be better than a 6800gs, but a factory oc'ed 6800gs would probably be similar performance.

    I agree. The 6800GT will probably give you better performance.
