    Cool Looking for gfx card

    I'm thinking of buying a gfx card for approx 100-150$ (80€-90€). Any suggestions?
    I'd like it to be an O/C "friendly" card too if possible.

    You could get a geforce 6600 (PCI-E) for that much:

    Do note it is OEM, the retail version is $20 or so more

    As for AGP, i cant see anything much better than radeon 9600XT or 9800SE in that price range. Yes Newegg doesnt ship to europe, but you quoted dollars as well so i thought i may as well look on there

    A 6600 may be fien for some mild gaming but I would reallt suggest at least a 9800 Pro which would be over budget. The Sapphire is a great 9800 Pro card and very "O/C friendly."

    I'd say go for a 9600 and get yourself a second stick of RAM with the rest, because you'll want it. My Sapphire 9600 overclocks extremely well. Idon't have access to it ATM but I remember that it overclocked to amazing speeds in an HP with no case fans...

    hmm, my 9600 doesnt run these speeds very long (then again it is a powercolour one), i should probably change the stock cooler but im getting a new system now anyway

    Well, I'll go for the 9600 and extra ram cuz 256 just isn't enough.
