Same card - with a different heatsink/fan combo - is $154 on newegg.

yeah, for whatever reason I see a lot of people getting XFX and most not being happy with it....madwad has one though and his worked fine...they might have gotten it all fixed now, but when they were first coming out they were sending out a lot of bad cards

Hope yours is aright though. 6600GT is indeed a good little card...I liked mine, but then I got greedy for more power and had to step up to the 6800GT
