I think all the 6600GT's are the same just some manufacturers clock them higher and some use DDR instead of GDDR3. BFG makes powerful video cards too. I would get a BFG one, a 7800GTX that is, haha.

Yeah, I would do the same. But oc'ing is only good if you don't melt your gpu. and if your cooling is adequate enough. and if you know how to period...

I also heard alot of people saying the new drivers suck, and you have to go back like 3 driver updates to not get artifacts.

Get a BFG 6600GT, it's the brand Alienware uses so it can't be crap . . . right?

Haha, BFG Tech is one of the best brands ever. One time, my 6800 NU died (which resulted in me using my old nVIDIA Riva TNT-2 ) I emailed them about the problem, and they replied within 10 minutes. I sent it in, got it back and it's all good now. I'm very impressed.

Im gonna be using a zalman hs/f on the 6600gt, from the benchmarks I've seen most people using the pny version get like 600/1250. Not too shaby.

Right now w/o OC'ing it I can run doom 3 on ultra @ 1120 x W/E resolution and get an avg of 40+ fps.
