Well I have narrowed what I believe to be the best three GPU choices for around $400. Which card will provide the best gaming performance at a standard resolution of around 1440 x 900? The computer I will be using it in is in my signature.

I plan to overclock the card a bit. And I plan to use a 28" LCD 720p / 1080i TV as my monitor.

I would go with the Card that has the most memory since your going to overclock it anyways. Remember to turn up the fan speed in Ntune when you crank up the clock speed.

Do not get the EVGA 640-P2-N829-A3 GeForce 8800GTS SSC 640MB. It uses the older G80 core, and is slower. The newer G92 core runs cooler and overclocks better. The 8800GTS 640MB also only has 96 stream processors, while the 8800GT has 112 and the 8800GTS 512MB has 128, same as the 8800GTX. The 8800GTS 640MB has been EOL'ed as old tech.
