Default Nvidia 6800LE?

Browsing the Newegg site today, I came across this beauty:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814122212

Leadtek WinFast Nvidia GeForce 6800LE 128MB AGP 8x/4x

Now it is only $129, is that a good card. I see ppl saying it OC's well, and if it does, that looks like a steal for the price, and might even get it over the 6600GT for my 2nd build. What do you guys think?

It's around the same peformance as a 6600GT, but cheaper and you can unlock crap

So what do you suggest? Now I am thinking the 6600GT would be a better choice heh. That stock cooler on that card is so 1337 tho.

It actually looks slightly better than the 6600GT, with it's 256-bit memory interface.

What does the LE stand for? Lower Edition?

But the 6800LE i dont think has as powerful of a core as the 6600GT.
