Im a fanboy, and probably biased, but this card looks really good. Anyone agree?

It is OK for the money, but they are not the best. Spend the extra on a 6800GS and you will not regret it. The XT uses only 8 pixel pipelines and a different slower core. Really not impressive in my book. Most reviews compare it to a 6600GT and usually the 6600GT is faster. If you are on a severely restriced budget, then I guess it is OK. If not, save up a few bucks more for the GS.

Also, go with EVGA. Best lifetime warranty on the planet. Covers everything besides physical damage.
