I have $150 budget for a video card. I am running dual monitors 19" LCD's Viewsonic. I am looking to upgrade my Ti4200. My favorite game is C & C Generals which is slow with large maps and 8 players. What are your recommendations? I heard the Geforce 6600 GT is good.

Any particular brand being better than others? I haven't been keeping up with all the issues with the manufacturers. I guess Gainward is no longer in the game.

Since you are from the US good choice would be either BFG or eVGA, both are supposedly pretty good.

My choice would be XFX or Leadtek extreme edition.

You are right, extreme, AGP version, is a bit more expensive.

newegg offers for 6600GT AGP start at $151 with rebate

Evga would be my pick.
It is a 500/1000 6600GT card and has the kind of cooler my XFX 6600 GT had, which was perfect. New model of XFX 6600GT AGP card, on sell at newegg, has HSF which is probably best replaced, so extra costs for after market cooling solution.

BTW eVGA sells for $184 with $25 rebate, so best case scenario $159

I like the extreme version but I am not sure that a little bit of power is worth another $50. I think I will do a regular 6600 GT Falcon referred to. Thanks for all the input guys.
