This one seems nicer, but the price is a LOT more!

I like gaming, which one is the best for the money?

Memory doesnt really make a huge difference. Depends on the resolution you are playing off. If you need a 1gb 8800gts, you can get one I think.

Do not buy a multi-GPU card, support is simply not good enough for them and the 8800GTS is more than enough for everything out there. You're better off saving your money. More and more developers are optimizing their game engines for consoles which only have a single GPU, so if you ask me, multi-GPU support is only going to get worse.

Yes you can, both Gainward and Palit make a 1GB GTS so if you play at a high resolution, the 1GB of VRAM will increase your performance.

That's not bad, but it is no faster than a 8800GT 512MB card even at the higher resolutions (2560x1600, 1600x1200,etc.). The price is nice though.

Here's the question we need answered, how much do you really want to spend?
