The first one is the better of the TWO. The eVGA 6600GT is better than the chaintech. Here- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-214&depa=1
Chaintech just doesn't have the same quality.

Are there any better PCI Express cards?

Does PCI Express make a difference over AGP cards?

or if there is even such thing the 6800ultra. But yea the 6600GT eVGA is better. The only diff w/ pci express is that its gonna be used in the future alot more but for now there is no diff.
