Default Which 6600 GT brand to get?

The prices are all similar, and within the range I'm looking for. Anyone have some preferences or opinions on which brand is better than which?


1) eVGA e-Geforce 6600 GT 128MB AGP GDDR3 w/ DVI, HDTV-Out

2) Gigabyte Geforce 6600 GT 128MB AGP GDDR3 w/ DVI, TV-Out

3) MSI NX6600GT-VTD128 Geforce 6600GT 128MB DDR3 w/ VIVO, DVI

4) XFX Geforce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 AGP w/ TV-Out, Dual DVI

Leadtek, and if you can, the Leadtek extreme version.

eVGA, MSI, and Leadtek usually get the best ratings. They are also usually a little less expensive.

I have the MSI and have no problems with it. But i've read reviews about other brands being better. Google search it , I think Leadtek was the best....either way u will be happy.

Leadtech or eVGA. I have an eVGA, and it works great. Also hear plenty of good things about Leadtech.

ya ya. I was just too lazy to search. There are so many posts about video cards I figured I'd get a quick response just asking myself...

...and I did!


Thanks for the info peeps!

YOu just admited to swamping the forum in the useless persuit of repetitive information.

*slaps forhead* You sir, are annoying.

Someone should sticky a list of reliable brands. Just a list of commonly suggested brands, not products, and no replies. Just a simple list.
