Talking Re: 6600gt Agp Vs Fx5900 Ultra Agp

Get the 6600GT.....because one day, you might actually want to play something other than HL2 and CS:S. I know it sounds crazy, but for the price of that 6800 with the Ultra Cooler, you could probably find a 6800GT on eBay. You might have to spend a couple more dollars, but the 6800GT would blow you away.

FYI: When I had my 6600GT, I ran the stress test on CS:S at 1280x1024 with high settings (no AA and maybe 8xAF) and I believe I pulled around 90+fps. That was with a P4 2.8. the 6600Gt would serve you quite well for those games.
