  1. hey guys i have made the decision to get a geforce 6600GT graphics card so ive been shopping around and i noticed that the different card companys have different prices for example a xfx card is $189 while a rosewill card is only $159 so my obvious question is is there much difference in performance or quality

    in that case the msi card i mentioned above is one of the best choices. just get yourself $210 before walking into the store.

    I would consider: bfg, asus, evga, leadtek, msi, and maybe gigabyte. Out of those consider the price differences and the bundle. Some may be $10 more than others but include a game that you'd like.

    Right now, these are very tempting with the rebate.

    Both are 5 star rated.

    I think I'd get the leadtek, $169, free shipping, $20 rebate($149 after), better bundle than evga.
