This looks tasty for cheap.....but to be honest I would save about $50-$75 more, wait 2 weeks, and buy a 8800GTS 320mb. Supposedly 8800s will soon have a price cut. I know that is what I am waiting for.

I was actually looking at this card first but I think I'm gonna wait a couple of weeks til I get my new cred card and buy an 8800gt 320mb and if I can swing maybe a 640mb. If I'm real lucky I might be able to swing the gtx version...might take and extra week though.

What resolution do you use/plan on using?

The GTS 320mb will run absolutely brilliant on 1600 x 1200 and lower (and perform roughly the same as the 640mb version at the same time).

Anything higher, and the 640mb would be a wiser choice.

For now my highest resolution is 1440x900 and thats what i plan on using...I was gonna go cheap because anything I get will be better than the crappy 6600le I'm using now and I just want a better card so I can play my nwn2 game. this 6600 wont even run it at the lowest setting above like 20fps. originally I was looking at this for like 85 bucks and its na 8 series card but these 8500 dont have the geometry shaders that make the other 8 series card the force that they are now...so the 8600gt or gts will get the job done nicely (especially with that nice overclock on the card in my last post) and can run dx10 games decently well when they come out.
