149.99 after rebate.

if you do not want to deal with rebates I will look 4 others.

Do you need a agp or pci-e?

on $150 budget I would recommend the following depending on your motherboard

AGP
eVGA 128-A8-N350 Geforce 6600GT $149 after rebates
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130220

PCI-E
Fujiplus FP-66GTPX128 Geforce 6600GT 128MB $155 after rebates
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814168001

If you wanted to spend a little more
AGP
eVGA 128-A8-N343-AX Geforce 6800 128MB $189
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130202

PCI-E
MSI RX800-TD128E Radeon X800 128MB 256-bit $162

6600gt dude of course but i would also recomend the 6800 non gt the price has dropped seriously low.. it gets 22.4 gig bandwidth because of its 256bit memory interface and its got 12 pipes which is unlockable to 16 for most of the 6800s..ill be getting a 6800 my self in about a week! cant wait lol
