Default How do you read these graphic cards?

Hi~ what up

reccently i bought a eVGA 6600GT and now i want to go to those computer shops to let them fix my old 9600 pro, so i can have both my computers set up for some gaming.

the problem is, i don't know how to read the graphic cards :bald:

is ATI 9600XT " A Tee Eye nine-thousand-six-hundred" or " Atee nine six zero zero" ? radeon is " Ray-dee-on" or " raaa-di-oh-ne" ?

is 6600GT " six-thousand-six-hundred" or " sixty-six hundred?

and how about nVidia? how the heck do you read an "N" if "V" is at the front of it? :S do i go like " N--- Veedia " or " Niividia" ?

you know i dont want to get a little embarrassed if i read it wrong in front of a computer expert ( the repairman)


can somebody please tell me thanks a lot

I dont think a computer shop can fix individual parts like that........ Did you blow like a capacitor on it?
