I can finally afford to upgrade when I get paid in 2 weeks so i'm looking to get a new graphics card and a new PSU but am unsure of what to go for. I'm stuck between either and 8800GS or a HD2900.

I run my games at 1680x1050 so want something that can run Oblivion at that resolution and still turn up a few settings. I also run 2 monitors (20" and a 19") so it needs to be able to run both of them well enough, would it be worth the extra few quid to get a GTX.

I realise I will need a new PSU aswell as I only have a Seasonic 430w atm.

You may be able to get away with a 320MB 8800GTS at that resolution, but for the optimum I'd recommend the 640MB 8800GTS.

The question then would be which 8800GTS, and would the Corsair 520w PSU be enough to power this along with my 6300 C2D, and would it leave any room to eventually overclock the processor.
