Which migt be bad in the case of a 6600GT. I heard the coolers on those were tipsy, casuing them to break their thermal interface and kill cards. So I bought a leadteck. $200 with a 50Mhz stock overclock, a nice HSF (bigger fan=quiet), and Splinter Cell: PT (prince of persia comes with it too, but I will probably not play it)

AGP won\'t fit in PCI-E... unless you use a really good hammer. ~Trotter

I've heard mixed things about PNY but never used myself, same with Asus and MSI.
eVga is probably the most reliable brand of nVidia graphics cards, they're always a good buy.

Anyone else see the humor in this?
