6800GT... HERE, CHECK THIS ONE OUT! VERY NICE CARD!!

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-203&depa=1
The stock eVGA is good cooling, copper everything, and the fans run at higher RPMs then most other companies. Cheap also!

ok that saves me a .... 1 whole dollar lol heres what i have to choose from as of rite now
x 800 (gigabyte model) http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...125-135&depa=1
or 6800 gt (evga) http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-130-203&depa=1

i can OC the memory 100mhz no prob on teh x800 im sure, so it would be a bit faster than the 6800, or i could oc the core on the 6800 gt lol so hard
thank god i ahve a month
