Im goning to order a PCI-E 6600GT today though Im wondering what brand I should shoot for. I know the BFG cards come OC a little though I've also heard XFX puts faster memory on their PCI-E cards or is that not true?
The BFG is $50 more so if it's not really worth it I'll go for the XFX. I have the XFX 6600 256mb right now, its not bad but with everything cranked in Swat 4 it can get slow in the fire fights. That and I want a card that will be able to handle brother in arms really good, 1024/no aa or af but details cranked.

XFX is pretty crappy imo. Not that i'm judging anyone with a xfx card-but i'd get the bfg card-u get a lifetime warranty and it's a solid company.

I'm reading about too many complaints with XFX, so I'd avoid them. BFG makes solid cards, but if the price bothers you then consider some other brands, just not XFX :thumbdwn:

Last month I ordered XFX 6600GT and it came DOA, I RMAed it and went for BFG6600GTOC, very satisfied so far.
Avoid XFX 6600GT at all cost ! :D
