Default what's the GPU upgrade for a 7900GTO on a X2 3800 (oc of course!)

Wanted to throw one out to the guru's out there. I have a 7900GTO on a x2 3800+ at 2600mhz (2gb ram - this is the s939 system). I have been looking at the 8800GT, but the GTS looks good, and now AMD has some interesting ones available. My monitor is a 22" (1680x1050)

I want to get a card that won't be too bottlenecked by the CPU. Hard decision, please help me make it.

Appreciate any help offered

I think a 8800GT or HD3870 would work nicely.

A GTS 512MB would be bottlenecked in your system I think as it's basically on-par with the GTX.

I'm not sure about that, although I game at 1920x1200, my S939 system is still mostly GPU bottlenecked with my GTS G92.

Like you recommended, an 8800GT or HD3870 would both be fine though.
