are u sure 128mb is fast enough?? also whats the best 939 motherboard
128meg of ram has nothing to do with speed. All the video cards on the market have enough ram except the 128meg Asus 6800GT.

Also, Dale has some good advice. 6600GT AGP are 1.5 volts though, so dont worry about it.

9800 pros are pretty weak, get an nvidia, like 6600GT or 6800

no

with a 4000+ and a 6600gt, just barely.

with a 3400+ and a 6600gt, dunno.

test setup was a 4000+, and they used the v66.93 nvidia driver, which is a little bit slower then the newer drivers.

With a 6600gt I'd expect to get some chop in online play, by chop I mean dipping below 60 FPS. You never listed a budget, so I won't even attempt to make a suggestion. Good luck

No he's saying that the graphics card won't be fast enough.

If you want really good gaming this is the graphics card for you:

The 6600GT will do fine and not let you down, unless you crank up AA and AINSF
