6600GT or 6800 Nilla?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, so pretty much, I'm running on whats below, with the RAM for Christmas. BUT, my parents dont wanna spend much more on my Video Card. This leaves me with two options. Since I'm unfortunately still on AGP, I can get the 6600GT, or the 6800 Vanilla, and I also guess that nVidia isn't ever realeasing the 6800GS AGP model? Before X-Mas that is. This kind of sucks. Anyways, I'll be happy with what I get I'm sure. But I have noticed that the only 6800 left on Newegg is the crappy Apollo one. It's got tons of bad reviews too... So I'm feeling a little iffy on it. I did look at the 6600GT's though, and they look pretty nice, plus I could get the EVGA one for 119 Bucks, which would really make them happy. I was a little concerned about the 128 bit interface though, would that hold me back at all? Should I go with the 6600 or risk taking a bad trip with the 6800? Any comments would be most appreciated.


P.S. I was also wondering about something else. I have a "Composite Monitor", I'm not sure if thats what it's called, but yeah, the cards I was looking at have S-Video output, and I was wondering if I could still use the card, perhaps with like an adapter from Radioshack or something? Yeah...
