Yeah, Chaintech sucks all togather. Never buy any kind of hardware from them. For Nvidia cards, get eVGA, and for ATI cards like the 9600 XT stick with Sapphire.

Yeah dude don't worry I learned that same damn lesson. As I said I will never freakin get another chaintech anything again. But when I bought that I was going from a Gf2 Ti 64mb to the FX 5700 256mb and I knew nothing of video cards and brands like I do now =/

Oh well I've made a few mistakes the hard way meaning buying something crappy

chaintech, BAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!!!! plus, I dont have PCI-E, only AGP 8x.
anyways, you guys are gonna slap me for this, but I just got a Gigabyte 9600 pro for $85 shipped.
I decided I have other priorities aside from video cards being in college and all....

That card of course can't at all be compared to the 6600GT, but it is still a good card....and now you got money for all that Ramen noodles you gotta eat in college
