hi.

Its an alright card, but if your a gamer that wants the best in games, try elsewhere.

The Geforce 6600GT is a great card for all the latest games though. Try rooting for that

Ah right. Yeah, i think it is better than that, as for instance, I don't think the 9200 is a Direct X-9 card, but Geforce 5500 is So you will defineitly get faster speeds in games i'd imagine

LMAO!! Don't stay clear of ATi, that is just silly. They currently are kicking nVidia's ass.... Their new crossfire technology is IMPRESSIVE. That is my next build, and I am partial to nVidia to be honest. That is the lowest price I have EVER seen on a 9800Pro!!!!!!! You would be silly not to get that.
