He's giving it to his dad. ^^

I would get the GS one. Faster. Everything else looks good.

Default Re: Buying a new Rig...

I have no clue. I just know that it's like the 6800GT card but cheaper and is 40% faster than the 6800 card (more like an OCed 6800). It uses a PCI-e molex connector to give it more juice. So good. More power...
