Okay. I'm lookin for a GFX card for 200-230 bucks or so. I think I want this http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...161-109&depa=1

9800PRO, but I'm also kinda lookin at this Geforce 6600:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...145-098&depa=1

Noise of the fan doesn't matter at all. Here's the setup I'd use it on:

XP-M 2600
2x512 PC3200 Rosewill
NFII Ultra Infinity
Volcano CPU fan

I'm pretty sure thats all the info that matters.

So, tell me whatcha think of the 6600 vs. 9800, or if there's a better card (from newegg) I'd love the suggestions.

6600GT is faster than the 9800 Pro, but only barely, but keep in mind that the 6600GT is only on PCIe for now... and the 9800 PRO is AGP

I believe that the 6600 will outperform the 9800, but you need a pci express mobo to use it. LOL we all posted the same thing in under a minute, nice!

Wow, thanks for the quick responses lol. So the 9800 would be the only one I could use because of mobo...K, I think i'll go like that. Ya think the requirments for games will go up to 256mb anytime soon? Cuz i'd rather spend the extra money now than have to get a 256 in like 8 months to keep up with games...

Only a card with a high core clock speed and wide memory bus is going to be able to make effective use of 256MB of memory, if you can afford it I would suggest you go for a 6800 "Limited Edition" from eVGA that is basically a 6800GT with the clock speeds of a 6800standard. Or, if you can wait a few months, the 6600GTs will be coming out on AGP

Ooooohhhh hey!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right now, Best Buy has an Nvidia 6800 (non gt or ultra) on sale for $250!!!!!!! It also includes a copy of Far Cry. Dude, GO WITH THAT! If you can afford it of course.

Edit: It's the BFG model, which is already oc'ed from the factory, so bonus!

Neweggs got the Leadtek (out of stock now) 6800 with pure 1-slot copper, which can unlock all pipes succesfully for only $285! Read the newegg reviews! I'm getting that after I sell my 9800 Pro "XT"for 150!

I didn't see how long it's on sale for. I'd LOOOVE that card, cuz I was gonna get the 9800 for 250 and Farcry for 30some, so this card would actually save me money, and I like geforce more anyways.

But how long is it on sale for??
