Question help me pick out a video card

Im would like to save up around $150 for a video

lol nice 100th post. I am getting close to my 500th post and i am thinking about what to do as a celebration lol.

As for the videocard say get a 6600gt if you have the money now. If you are still saving up the money then wait for the 6800gs to drop as you save.
