Default This is a good video card right?

I need to get a good video card to make my first build complete. I just want to know if this one is good.

I saw that one coming. When they include items with the cards (Call of Duty 2), you know they're about to disclude the game and lower the price of the card alone... marketing strategy to eeeeaase the price down ever-so-slowly and get a few more sales before they price officially falls. They get the combo gifts for virtually nothing...

actually, personally, I've been in the Deer Hunting forums. I think you were talking to static, but I feel like I need to answer too, cause it's news to me.

Yeah, the price dropped a week ago or so and then all of eVGAs were sold. I was going to buy one and ended up buying one off monarch. I never realized that little sign you showed FghtinIrshNvrDi about how they give free things away before they lower the price. Im going to have to use that some time.
