and then the HD4850 1024mb 265bits GDDR3 167dollars (XFX)

Talking about the HD5750 (1024mb 256bits GDDR5) costs around 195dollars, and here i have the ZOTAC GTS250 at 187 dollars, but more than 160-165 dollars costs too much here on my country. i will se what i will chose...

Well i will work harder to see if i can get the 8800 from somewere or a 9800 if i get enought.
just in case your not aware, the 8800GT & 9800GT are the same card

Nvidia has a hobby of re-branding their GPUs, the only difference is the 9800 sometimes ships with 1GB VRAM rather than 512mb & the 9800 is capable of ''TriSLI'', other than that..there's no difference.

I would just like to say, because it has come up before. When a person asks for suggestions for a video card or whatever. It is always a good idea IMO to ask where he is planning on purchasing from. Since we all don't live in the U.S. and not everything is offered to those who live in other countries which limits their choices. So it's always good to know first off where they plan to buy from, and second what they are willing to spend. It saves a lot of suggestions that just don't apply. Maybe this might help the next person that makes such an inquiry. Fabe

That's from wikipedia... so.. i must get a 8800GTX, cheap and 9800GT like.
Thanks a lot Skunksmash. i will check some prices tomorrow and see what i can get. personally i'm never going to use SLI, so i dont need 3-Way SLI, i don't even have the required MOBO so... who cares about 3-Way??
Thanks

Another slight difference is the 9 series are slightly better optimised for blu-ray playback (even though most of them don't come with HDMI ports ), but this and what Skunk said is pretty much all there is.

Yeah but i dont have Blu-Ray because i dont have HiDef Screen or TV.

Soo, that's kinda useless for me :P

It was very cheap so i was lucky

I have actually on my PC an ZOTAC nVidia geForce 8600GT 1gb, i have a LCD screen with a max resolution of 1366x768 (16:9), i use to play games like Resident Evil 5 on max details but using a resolution of 1280x720, starting next year, will be released Mass Effect 2, and i've got the requiriments... 8800GT...

Next i'd like to update my GPU, to something similar or more powerfull than the 8800GT
Without touching the 9800 Series GPU, and without going to 200 Series.

I've saw the 9400GT and 9500GT on sale, but i'm not really sure about these... Some people told me that 8800GT is almost like 9800GT, but here were i live (Argentina) buying a 9800GT is way simillar to buy the GTS 250.. But it's damn expensive... So i'd like to know wich one to buy in comparsion with the 8800GT.

Thanks everyone
(P.s. Sorry for my bad english)

I think after installing the GTS250 i will need a new power suply.. i feel like the HDD drives are working slow...
COD6:MW2 has some freezing when i turn back very fast, and CRYSIS almost like, unplayable... permanent lockups, i think is the power suply (wich doesn't haves a PCI-Express special pin) and later i will add 2gb DDR2 800mhz more to my PC.
