Spend like $15 more and get a 6600gt. The X1300 is total crap. Don't be sucked in by it's huge heatsink. It doesn't make nearly enough heat to need that. It's like LED's in crappy power supplies. Fancy lights, stickers etc... aren't always a sign of a good product. The 6600gt has faster clock speeds and GDDR3 memory, which will greatly increase game performance compared to the X1300.
