Default Need Cheap 6600

hey,

I want to play battlefield 2, but need a new graphics card. I can't afford a 6800GT and figure the 6600 will do fine. However anyone know of a place to get them cheaper than tigerdirect or zipzoomfly or newegg??

newegg.com is the cheapest

Also get a 6600GT and not a 6600, a GT is close to doubble the speed of a normal 6600

I heard that you can unlock the pipelines to the 6200 and overclock it to 6600 levels.

Ebay will have cheaper ones, but if you do make sure that you get it from a powerseller/store with v. good feedback, and that it is new and boxed.


Also the 6600gt is alot better, and not hugely more expensive.

Did I say to get a 6200 and leave it like that? No, I said that it is possible to unlock the pipelines on the 6200 and overclock it so it will perform at the level of a 6600. He wanted a cheap way to get a 6600 and I offered a suggestion.

I don't think he's that advanced to go unlocking pipelines and OCing.
