This has been discussed tons of times already. It's not saying that every card you get will be bunk...because obviously they wouldn't be in business. But there have been tons of posts from XFX owners who've either had problems, or had to RMA the card.

The rate inwhich bad cards come off the assembly line shows the quality of a company and as of late it seems XFX produced some bad cards, whereas I can't say I've seen any posts with an eVGA 6600GT and someone having issues with it.

Those 3dmark scores stock or OC'd scores BTW?

You should try the 71.84 drivers, I got 3300 in 3dmark05 stock once I used those compared to 3088 under 66.94

Just posted this in another thread. I've kept a record of various conditions, these are my best stock and OC'd scores under various benches:

3dmark03
Stock @ DDR400 @ 2.5GHz - 71.84 Drivers- 7663 - 3dmark03(Build 360)

564/1101 @ DDR400 @ 2.5GHz - 71.84 Drivers- 8615 - 3dmark03(Build 360)

3dmark05
Stock - DDR400 - 2.5GHz - 71.84 - 3312 - 3dmark05

564/1101 - DDR400 - 2.5GHz - 71.84 - 3796 - 3dmark05

Aquamark3
Stock @ DDR400 - 2.5GHz - 71.84 - 49,494 - Aquamark3

564/1113 @ DDR400 - 2.5GHz - 71.84 - 53,192 - Aquamark3
