get this... I just did, wish i had the rest of my new components so i could actually use it... its a 6600GT turboforce edition... so its more than a standard 6600GT it has 500mhz core speed and 1000mhz memory speed... which is way above the standard 6600GT(Memory speed 400mhz)

http://www.giga-byte.com/VGA/Product...NX66T128VP.htm

This is where I got mine: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=164948

The only thing is that it is a PCI-E card and I dont think they make an AGP... so if its AGP you are wanting then this wont be one for you!
