lol i just looked at that link and it is $140, not $199. It is $119 after mail in rebate though.

I would defenitely go with that videocard for the price because it is a good deal, but if your price is $70 than i would say this.........

but the ati 9000 seris is outdated, go wiht the geforce 6000 seris. that 6600gt is an awesome deal.

What are you talking about, I said $119.
Go with the 6600GT, anything less wont be able to hold its own against it.
