Oh, ok I see. As far as comparing a 3870 vs. a 8800GT, the 8800GT is faster, it just depends on how much you want to spend. If your mobo is limited by the 8x, then definitely go with the 3870. When PCIe came out years ago, there wasn't a bit of difference between bandwidth speeds.. but now things have changed. If you don't see yourself upgrading in the future, or if the board is indeed only 8x, get the 3870. Otherwise, the 8800GT would be the better choice.
