http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...460940&CatId=0

Is this a reasonable price?

no, just because a 6600 ain't great
I'd just get a 6800GT, or wait until they come out with 6800gs for agp.

no u don't.
U have 2x 6600GT, the one on his link was a 6600.
And as u know there is a big difference. And no 2x 6600GT can't run FEAR with everything maxed out with eye candies at max and with the highest reso. So not all of the newest games. But then again, u need a 7800GTX 512 mb to play FEAR with that kind of settings.

Mammikoura has a point. There's quite the difference between a 6600GT and a plain ol' 6600. I would recommend getting a 6600GT instead, such as this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ubmit=Property. Now, I see that it only has 128 MB of memory, but you can't get a 6600GT or 6800GT with 256 MB of memory (unless there's one I don't know about), but this card is pretty good. I have one right now, however, that's being replaced by a new 7800GT in a few days.

Still a great card, though. I'll miss the little booger with his 98 degree load temperatures (Celsius! ).
