Default graphics cards?

ok, im just about to spend 50pounds (86$) on a used GeForce Nvidia 6600 256mb AGP, does that sound like a good idea, i dont really want to spend more than that, its to upgrade my radeon 9700pro 128, will there be much of a performace difference??

my suggestion would be to go for the 6600GT

gt means it has gdr3 ram, thus it's a lot faster

I got mine back when they cost around $180

but it was definately worth it...

hmm... save up for it... lol

anyway... sorry I couldn't be more help with the two cards you're compareing.... I don't really know how good either one is.. I only know that the 6600gt is a massive improvement over the 6600

just use pricegrabber.co.uk and look for a 6600GT AGP, although the PCI-E one's are much cheaper but you dont have a PCI-E board.

and does this mean that newegg is gonna be available in the UK
