Okay, I have installed in my PC right now a brand new MSI NX8800GT OC 512M. However, I also have an eVGA 8800GT 512MB Superclocked sitting in a sealed box. Which one should I really use? I picked the 8800GT because it has more pixel shaders, but the two cards seem neck-and-neck in comparison. I have a 22" LCD at 1680x1050. See Sig for the rest.

Vote and give opinions, please. Thank you.

8800GT of course :p

I can't wait to get a second one of these ... hopefully this time it doesn't show up mangled and in pieces like the last one. Nice job Fed-Ex.

Have you tried to overclock yours any further or adjusted the fan speed? Running mine at stock everything.

no, actually I haven't tried it yet. I will once I get my office moved from the 2nd floor of the house to the basement, it's about 15 degrees cooler down there. It idles at 39-40c with the fan @ 60% and I haven't seen it go over 55c but still, I'll wait until its in a nice cool environment.
