That up there is what implied that you meant all 6600GTs, not just the 512MB version.

da*n you people read his post wrong. he was referring to the original post, the link, the ebay item. the SUBJECT OF THIS POST. it's a piece of junk, not the 6600gt in general.

I dont recall calling every 6600GT a piece of junk, so dont assume so.
Are you serious, it's right up there.

Moving along, nothing is "no-named", everything has a brand.

Flanker, sorry, maybe I should have been more specific, I was only referring to the crappy one that I linked.

Don't sweat it. I understood you the first time. It was clear that you weren't bagging on 6600GT's in general. You were picking the one out that you linked to and started the thread about. Don't worry. There are members on this website that are highly confrentational.

I'm sorry, but that post was clearly aimed at the 6600GT. It may not have been what you intended, but thats what it seemed like to anyone. Sorry, it just did. You cleared that up, nothing more to be said.

The post was clearly not aimed for all 6600GTs and me being kinda lax at realizing meanings to some things on forums realized that. The point has actualy already been made when the card first came out. The 512mb verisons of the earlier cards suck, plain and simple.
