of course not

haven't heard a lot of things about chaintech, but some people have been getting good OC's with them

I bought a chaintech FX 5700...first one died within 2 months, RMA'd it, got the new one back last september, now that one is already dying, it's the reason I got the 6600GT last month. Never will I get chaintech again.

accually one of my friends tested a x600 pro with 256 and a x600 pro with 128 meg ram, and 256 performed better >.>
Well so you know the x600 is absolute crap. The 6600GT can perform quite on par with an X800pro...

For $180 you can't beat it.

$184 at zipzoomfly, free 2nd day shipping

$189 at newegg, and right now up until April 4th it's .99cents for shipping

I was actually looking at that exact EVGA card. Yeah that card looks good... if i had a spare $180 to spend, i think this is what i would spend it on. i guess i'll add that to my wishlist
