not bad. from the benchmarks I saw a while ago when it debuted, I think it landed somewhere around the 6600GT cards. And if that really is the case, then I'd go with the 6600GT for price reasons. Just my opinion.

Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"

If you can afford wait a little bit longer and save up for a eVGA 6800GS you'll be so happy you did so.

Thanks for the replies

The eVGA geforce 6800GS looks like a good deal.

Ok im a little bit confused. Why is the radeon x1600pro on par with the geforce 6600gt when the x1600pro cards on board memory is 512mb and 256 bit and the 6600gt is 128mb and 128 bit.

My main purpose would be for games. I would like to be able to run F.E.A.R. without any delays.

Thanks for the help guys.
