    Which card to get?

    I'm planning on getting a new vc and since I haven't really been updated lately I don't know which one I should get.
    Here are the choices :

    1. ASUS N6600TD ( GF6600 )
    2. ASUS V9570TD ( GF FX5700 )
    3. Radeon 9600XT
    4. Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 Pro ( 128MB )

    which one do you guys think does best at this price point?
    I'd really appreciate your help.

    I would probably choose GF6600, however Sapphire R9800PRO is the faster card

    9800PRO, assuming its 256bit version, actually isnt that much slower and in some games its even faster then 6600GT

    However, I dont like R9800PRO, too many RMAs of 9800PRO cards, inadequate cooling and IMO comes clocked higher then it should be.

    BTW cant you get a good deal on 6600GT?

    This would be by far your best option.

    Nvidia GT6600 is a good choice, see http://graphics.tomshardware.com/gra...404/index.html

    Ey guys, thanks for the help there. Good news is that my cousin's giving me this PCI Express mobo so I think I don't have any more problems. I'm getting that ASUS EN6600GT. I think it's good. I was thinking of R700 but they're not available yet over here. So I think I'd go for this one. Ey guys, thanks for the help.
