    i dunno.It looks a bit, cheap. While the price range is close to similar cards the cooling solution looks a bit suspect. For that price I would advise going with evga or xfx. At least thats my opinion.

    Well for $150 there isn't much out there. I am guessing you are gonna be gaming with it. In that case the 6600GT is your best bet.

    I agree with Cyrax..that card looks a bit cheap.

    I think you are definitely on the right track with the 6600gt. Right now it is the best GPU for the $$. I have been looking at the AGP version of that eVGA card and I am fixing to upgrade to it.

    What are your current PC specs? I am curious about your current power supply because these newer cards need more power in order to run properly.

    Look at the 6800gs. This card will play any of the games that you want it to now on high settings. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130258

    200 at newegg, and if you are patient you might get a rebate and or price drop soon. You will be very very very happy with this card if you get it. Your upgrade after will not have to come as soon.
