Re: Geforce 6600 GT disaster
Sorry to hear that. Thats the only downside of a "quiet" card. I was always glad to be able to hear my card at least somewhat so I didnīt run into such a problem of a .25ct part killing a $250+ card.
Back on topic, the 7600GT is an excellent card and a nice upgrade from your old one. The 7900GS is even better, more pipelines, and it comes with a 256-bit memory bus, for $199.
