Nope wont be OCing at all, just want something solid and stable
i'm not a genius with comps or anything, i heard msi can be a pain to install with compatibility problems
i just picked HD cause it was cheap, is it even worth paying 20$ more?

the 6800 256MB is a waste of money defintely upgrade to a 6800GS for 200 dollars.
