Default Cheap 6600gt

The company my brother works for said they would sell me a brand new 6600gt for $130 australian. The only thing is they're generic, manufactured by "Ledgend". Although i'll only be using it till the g80 comes out and it seemed pretty cheap. Do you guys think its worth it?

I know where you're coming from better, since NZ currency is nearer to the Aus dollar than USA's. I'd do it, especially if you just want it to last you until G80. Seems a prettty good deal, seeing a generic 6200TC costs $83 over here.

I say go for it.

XFX 6800XT owns any 6600GT, I know in the states it's often cheaper than any 6600GT, so look for the XFX 6800XT if you can.

Sounds like an okay deal, assuming you can give it back if it doesn't work.
