    I looked at the GeForces, i have one right now its just a 5500fx though. I think the Radeon would perform better, because the RAMDAC bandwith is way higher than the nvidia, the core clock on the Radeon is higher too, but it comes pre overclocked, so i dont know the non-overclocked core clock. Lol your avatar is nvidia....

    It allows for more bandwidth. The 1600 does support SM 3.0 and the 800GTO doesn't. Not a big deal right now as most games don't use that yet. Pretty much a toss up between the cards. Its always good to have multiple options!

    Hmm, i think i may have to resort to "Which one looks cooler" lol. 256bit allows for more bandwith, but the other 1 has a higher Memory speed, i dont know lol. Definitely not gonna be that 7300 mentioned earlier Lol. I think i am going to get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102019 because its 5$ cheaper (Jk). But my first thought is usualy the best :D.
