Default Any Chance This 6600 Price Will Drop?

I am looking to buy this:

Is there any chance it will drop soon? Yes, it is AGP 4X/8X because my MoBo is a POS! I just need to know, I'm getting a new job, but I also have insurance and such to pay for.

no, NEVER get the 6600, no matter how cheap it is

a 6600gt is minimal

I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.

Chaintech is a good brand, from what I've heard.

Don't sweat it if it ain't a GT. Buy what you can afford. You can always upgrade later.
