yes it is a good bang for the buck im getting one also and im a cheap bastard to so. Yea it will last you a long time seeing you with a 64mb i can tell you can use it for a long long time lol. whats your mobo support 4x/8x for the vga card cause the 6600GT works for both so its a great buy. If you game its get if you use it for a home suer still great and will last.

If thats too much for you, I find that this one is also a very good performance/value card, and its cheaper
