HotHardware has managed to pull themselves away from gaming on the XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB long enough to write a review.  Their findings agree with other reviews you may have seen, this is a great performing DX10 card at a good price.  The only real impact the RAM has is if you have a 30" widescreen display and crank the resolution up to 1920x1200 and 2560x1600, and frankly if you bought the widescreen, you probably want the full 8800 GTX anyways.

ATI's twins, two new X1650XTs

HotHardware has a review of a pair of very closely related cards.  The HIS Radeon X1650 XT iSilence II runs at the frequencies specified by ATI and the HIS Radeon X1650 XT IceQ Turbo runs just a bit faster.  These pair offer a nice choice, you can have a silent card for about $150 or trade in the silence for a little more oomph and pay around $200.  Of course the 1950 Pro is much faster and not much more expensive that the Turbo, so you may want to keep that in mind.
