Default ordered my 6600GT today

XFX 6600GT
i've debated the past month between a 6600GT/6800GT/Guitar Amp

kinda let the 6800GT go cause i'm not that hardcore of a gamer, but...do like to play them about an hour a day.
seen that tigerdirect had a sale on til the end of the month with the 6600GT...so....why not.
my geforce 4 mx420 is still crankin' but...time for an upgrade.

i'll finally be able to run a 3DMark too. my mx couldn't run it for some reason.

anyway.

edit:
heh, plus it's blue...it'll match my mobo hahaha

Your mx420 cannot run 3dmark? I have made someone elses mx400 run it, as well as a mx440 which are exact same hardware as yours except speeds

Congrads on your card

actually XFX was the cheapist for once.
they were the only one on tigerdirect offerin' the sale on 6600GT's

they've got a 30 dollar mail-in-rebate.
which...techincally brings er down under 200 (canadian)
everything else was still 235+ with no rebates.

so...figured good company with rebate...go for er! haha


hahaha hell yea, i play starcraft too when i get to together with my buddies. great fricken game man.

1st card, random reboots, I even replaced my PSU before RMA'ing it.

2nd card, tears like a bastard, but besides that it's ok
