  1. I know this is probably a dumb question, but none the less if someone could help me out that would be great.
    I was wondering which of the two is the better video card?

    EVGA E-GEFORCE 7600GS AGP 400MHZ 256MB 700MHZ DDR2 DVI-I VGA HDTV Out Video Card
    or
    ASUS V9999 Gamer Edition - GeForce 6800

    I suspect the ASUS V9999 is better, but I just wanted to be sure.

    I don't know much about the V9999 but I'll go with the 7600

    The V9999 has a superior GPU and cooling, which will allow you to OC it to get 6800GT-like performance. So it is the better card.

    The V9999 is a less reliable card at the moment... giving more users problems. They will work it out, but I prefer the EVGA

    It's a three-year old card but has faster RAM and a faster GPU than the 7600GS. And I haven't seen any bad reviews of the card as far as cooling goes, they just say it's very expensive, lightening your wallet by upto $400 at the time it was released.

    If you can find it the V9999 would probably be the better card. Do you have the card in your hand? I recommend the Radeon X1950Pro with 512 MB of DDR3 if you don't. It should cost less and beat the pants off the old V9999 aka 6800. You can find the Radeon X1950Pro at Newegg.
