160 or $160?

I paid 170 for my 256MB 6800GT, Also had my pick of the 6800GS's for around that price aswell. If your talking $US, maybe a 6600GT?

It's that card, or a 6600GT 256M, but the performance loss will be noticeable. You don't really need a 256Meg, trust me on this one. I just built my friend a comp with a 128Meg 6800GT, and it runs everything fine.

Yea but you and me both know, read that guys review. 68 fps on cs:s?? I could get that with my old FX550 256M..... I say go with the ATi, it's cheaper and it'll be better than that 6600GT.

Man god damn just go here:

www.newegg.com and go to the search, type in PCI-E, and set the max price to 160. That's the cheapest place, and it has a bunch of cards.
