Default Possibly getting a 6600GT finally...

I found this price on a eVGA 6600GT AGP. After rebate it comes down to 157$, just wanted to ask here if anyone has found a better price at an online retailer before I went for this. Or if anyone has strong objections to Monarch Computer Systems? Thanks

This is the same graphics card that I have been looking at...
so...
it would be wise to get it?
But you must consider that the rebait is about $20 +$157 = $177

still cheap...

but I also wondered if eVGA is that good...

Well, now I've found a competitor for that one the Leadtek A6600 GT TDH now on Newegg for 149$ after 20$ rebate. And it seems the free Farcry and Call of Duty with the eVGA card is gone, and Leadtek comes with Splintercell: Pandora Tomorrow, and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. I think I'm going to go with the Leadtek now. Also I can trust Newegg's service a little more.

i second that

37C idle and 60C load if you keep your card clean (mine raised ~5C when dust started to get it)

and holy shet, 150AR? i got mines a while back for $205
