I'm looking on newegg.com, i searched GeForce 6600GT and it came with many options. Now this is where i was confused. Certain cards that seem the same are either higher prices, or lower. Heres some.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...82E16814139171R - $95
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814139170 - $120
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...82E16814122001R - $116

Theres also many more. I'm looking for the highest performance with current tech. Since I'm looking to buy a GeForce 6600GT, I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction on which card is the best buy out of all these cards listed. The one listed $116 also has 256MB instead of 128MB.

Would a 7800GT, which costs a tad more, be a better buy?

I would have a range around $200, really don't wanna spend more than 200.

Thanks.

Well, first, does your system accept PCI-E? Or AGP?



-Edit

Im gonna have to say that if it takes PCI-E, this one is the best choice

though if its AGP, keep looking.

PCI-E is generally better for performance, and its replacing AGP slots on MOBOs nowadays.

check your motherboard manual or specs. It'll say something like expansion slots in there. Look and see if there are agp or pci-e slots to expand in. If you cant find that info post what motherboard you have and i or someone will help you out.

Ok so you're going to have to go with AGP. You can get a normal PCI, but not PCI-E. Theres a huge difference. Keep looking and come back when you find a card you might want, we'll help you out and let you know if thats the best card for your money.
