I have finally decied to go with a new video card instead of an LCD. To get what I want in a monitor, I would have to pay upwards of $250 for something that will be quickly supassed by rapidly evolving LCD technology. I curently have an X600XT (thoguht I was getting a mid-range card. heh. lol.
). So I'm looking at a 6600GT, and have found two on newegg that look good:
An Albatron, $184 here
And an EVGA $177 here
My questions are:
->Looking at the pics, or from experience, which one will have better cooling? Which one will be quieter? I'm not an overclocker, but I want my equipment to be able to take some punishment
->Are they both reputable companies? I know a freind who has an Albatron card and loves it, so I am sort of leaning toward that.
->There shouldn't be any appreciable difference in performance between the two, right?
->Any other companies I should consider, or even other sub $200 chipsets?
