Lightbulb BFG - 6600 GT

EDIT:

* I mistakenly asked about Gigabyte, instead of BFG.. Don't I feel stupid .. * Sorry guys..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey fellas.. Just ordering some parts for a new system. Was gonna buy a Leadtek/eVga 6600 GT, but just saw that the BFG version is selling for $199 canadian ..

Never owned a BFG before. What's the verdict?.. Any of you guys have had any problems with em?...

The Gigabyte will be fine. The Leadtek has a bigger heatsink and so it will probably be better for overclocking, and all around it is a better brand, but the Gigabyte is probably decent too.

Isn't the giga-byte passive cooled? I am actually buying a 6600GT very soon (within the next month) and am going to go with one of the leadteks. Nice big fan for quiet goodness

One of the best sinks i've seen are on the eVGA and PNY.

eVGA has done better with the 6 series GPU.

Chankama - I've yet to see a post about somebody's Gigabyte 6600gt failing, at least on this board anyways.It seems you can't go wrong with eVGA,Gigabyte and Leadtek.

You know.. I don't know what the hell I was thinking.. I just realized it..

This whole thread is wrong.. I was SUPPOSED to ask you guys about the BFG card.. Not Gigabyte.. I think I need some food.

Sorry for the trouble guys.. ..

What I was supposed to ask was, did anyone have any problems with "BFG" cards.. (not gigabyte)
