    Cool Time for a new 8800GTS but which one! VOTE for one!

    I'm planning to get a new card TODAY! I'm down to these cards and must make a decision and place an order before midnight (rebates expire April 30th on some of these). Here is what I am down to...

    1. MSI NX8800GTS 512M OC GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814127325 Price with mail in rebate and shipping $202.58. Comes with copy of Witcher game!

    2. PNY VCG88GTS5XPB GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814133215 Price with mail in rebate and shipping $197.58

    3. ECS N8800GTS-512MX GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814134037 Price with mail in rebate and shipping $176.99

    4. EVGA 512-P3-N845-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) KO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130337 Price with mail in rebate and shipping $216.99

    I need some help deciding which one to get...these cards are all within a $40 range from the most expensive to the cheapest(with shipping and MIRs included)

    Here's what I'd like to know...
    1. Does anyone have one of these ECS cards and are they as good as the others...stat wise they look fine but I know that doesn't always translate to real performance.
    2. Which card in this list would you go for and why?
    3. Anyone running any of these cards please tell me if you like its performance and whether you are overclocking it or not.

    I'm leaning at the moment to the MSI for two reasons...free game and comes overclocked slightly from the factory so I don't have to worry about messing with overclocking myself.

    Additional info:Here is my computer specs:
    Asus P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard with Intel Core Duo 6300 (2 PCI, 1 PCI x16, 1 PCIx1 all currently empty)
    2 Gig Ram
    WDC WD3200JS 320 gig HD
    DVD
    CD
    Floppy
    Onboard sound/video VIA chipset
    Buying new PSU to power this card -> OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS ATX12V / EPS12V 600W Power $69 after rebate!!! OCZ StealthXStream

    Thanks for the responses in advance!!! As I posted above time is of the essence as I will have to order TODAY to get these rebates so please post early and post often!!!

    You wont go wrong with any of those cards. If your planning on overclocking, get an EVGA, an ASUS or BFG card, they seem to have higher headroom than the others. if you arent overclocking, look for a factory overclock but be prepared to pay a little extra for it. I have a BFG 8800GTS OC, i overclocked it myself too but it has a lifetime waranty AND step up program in the US, so a winner all round. But out of those 4, i'd go for the EVGA

    I'd definately go with EVGA. The 8800 GTS 512 has 128SP compared to my 8800GT which has only 112SP. Your card also overclocks better and is faster the a 8800 Ultra. Enjoy!
