Sometimes. XFX in my opinion is one of the worst companies ever to produce nVIDIA GPUs. They're cheap to purchase because they cut corners in manufacturing and use cheap labor. I would definately avoid them. However, since they've worked so well for you, go ahead and keep using it.

Yeah, they might've improved a bit, but who the hell would use a aluminum heatsink sprayed matte black?! The point of a heatsink is to get heat away from the GPU and heatsink block, not just absorb it.

yea, my friends sapphire x700pro Toxic edition 128mb PCI-E gets pwned by my MSI 6600gt 128mb AGP in 3dmark03 in every test. and the shame is that he paid around $250 for that because he bought it around when the first came out, and i waited till the priced dropped on the 6600gt, so i only paid like $185 for mine

Yea, but which brand did you get? because some 6600gts have a 900mhz ram clock and some have a 1000mhz Ram clock. the MSI one has 1000mhz default, what 6600gt do you have? unless you have the BFG one, which is clocked at 525mhz/1050mhz
