Right here is the 7300GT - EVGA 256-P2-N445-LX GeForce 7300GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

69.99 plus 5 something shipping. It is LOADS faster than that FX6200. Like there really isn't even any competition.

The 7300gt is BTW actually faster than the 6600GT by a little bit. It's on average inbetween an X1600PRO and an X800GT me on this one. For the love of god please return that card...get your money back whatever and purchase that 7300GT as those two cards are not even close.

E6300 w/ Arctic Freezer Pro 7 @ 3.6ghz 1.4Vcore
Antec 900 Case
EVGA 750i FTW Mobo
4x1GB of G.skill DDR2-800
2 8800GT in SLI
22" Samsung Syncmaster
1 250GB WD and 1 Seagate 7200.10 in RAID 0
Corsair 520HX 3DMark06 Score: 13900

ya thats the non-turbocache version, look for one that has turbocache on it, even though it steals some RAM, it has a good price/performance ratio, and with my old Pentium D, i had a turbocache 7300, all i did was stick in a 256 MB stick and it looks like a discrete card which costs 50$ more, and it probably outperforms the norm ones

... they should make an 8800 gts and/or gtx in turbocache, hmm..........
