    Are you talking the 320mb card, or the 640mb 8800 cards?

    If you're talking the 320mb card, it would be a tough call.

    It would almost certainly be a close matchup.

    But since the 8800gts only requires one slot, and is DX10 compliant, I would say the 8800gts has the edge.

    And because it only uses one slot, it would let you use pretty much any motherboard with a pci-express 16x slot.

    and it has the option of adding a second 8800 later down the track.
