get an EVGA 8800GTS 320MB. unless you have plenty of cash to throw around than get a 640MB but dont get a 8800GTX just too powerful to challenge a game

a 8800GTS is a good choise. 320mb is definitely enough. GTX is of course better but it's so much more expensive that it's not really worth it, unless of course the prices there are really low.

actually id really recommend the 640mb one
you can run games smoother in high resolution and i just find it a much better card i no its more money but it really is worth it

Ignoring all the alterations (KO, Factory OC'ed, etc) it would go GTS 320 MB, GTS 640 MB, GTX, Ultra.
