GTS for me..for two main reasons:

1. It overclocks nicely, and should make up for a large part of the speed difference.

2. It uses only one PCI-E cable. Keeping things a little bit tidier in your case :P

I would go gts, and water cool and overclock it, you could buy a nice block for £85.

So most of you think gts... Hmmm... I still want the gtx

Well, I already have a w/c block (mcw60 iirc) which I can get the g80 adaptor plate for about £5 and the heatsinks for £20.

Jim actually brought to my attention something I overlooked. POWER! I have a hiper type-r 580w (think peak is 620w) that does have 2 pci-e cables, BUT will it cut it?

I recall NickS recently doing an article on how 500w of QUALITY power is sufficient to run an OC'd quad core, gtx etc...

Also, thanks for the feedback guys...

As for the prices... USA

Hmmm, I'm hoping my OC'd e6600 and my new ram will compensate for me being tight with the gfx card...
