eVGA is the best nvidia card makers. For the 6600 GT though, the leadtek runs a little slower, but has a better heatsink, allowing greater overclockability.

Believe they both run at 500/900 which means they will run equally

Hmmm memory is looking good too right now. Damn! Just found these:

It's no XMS... but hey. Double the memory for the price, and its not crappy value stuff either. Thoughts?

I didn't see the following in the list:

1. A girlfriend

2. A life

So I'm afraid I can't make a suggestion.

Hey man, no need to explain yourself. Some people just have no class.

Anyway, I'd go with the speakers if I were you. If you're into music and gaming ... why not?

I thought eVGA was like the only company to use 500 \ 900 core speeds. We however need to see if XFX and BFG use different memory or overclock their memory.
