Default Video Card

Hey you guys, i found this really good deal on newegg for this XFX PVT42EUDE3 6800 XTreme 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

* Model #: PVT42EUDE3

video card, online it says it has many good reviews, but I was wondering if it is actually any good. Please help. I kinda dont want to but it because i have had bad experience with a xfx 660 gt card and bad customer service, but this card is a sweet deal for only $99.99 after $35 rebate. if not can u guys recommened me a decently priced 6800, thx

Well, thats probably one of the worst 6800s out there. If you can afford it, go for a 6800GS. It will totally rip that $99 one to shreads.

99 bucks is a good deal, but still, pay the extra 50 for a way better card
