    Ultra if you can spend the extra. If you're gonna go all out, no sense in saving $35 dollars.

    GTX will not run Ultra speeds without Vmods.

    Wait for the next generation of cards from Nvidia or ATI like the 9800GTX or the ATI's 2950 Pro cards which is a Dx 10.1 card with PCI-E 2.0 capability.
