Default Should I go for it???

Hey all...should I go for this deal? The product is usually $80 but with rebates it ends up at $40. I can get a 1 year extended warranty for $13. So I ask this:

Is this board decent? Does it just use Nvidia components, or is it an Nvidia made by chaintech?

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=C460-7026

Will this card run with my mobo?

GA-7ZMMH

Are chaintech good cards for the price? Help me out guys...there's only six days left on this deal and it's while supplies last...

5200 will not suffice a hardcore gamer. The cards made by chaintech, the chipsets made by nvidia. I had this card at one time, very dissapointed. If you have an agp port it will work with your board.

For what you say you are going to use it for that seems quite good value and quality

No, don't go Chaintech..... THEY SUK ASS!!!

Here, try this card. It is better.

http://www.dvcentury.com/Merchant2/m...EE+SHIPPING%5D

It is a bit more, but is much better card (for the future), costs a bit more, but 1 year warranty is only 6.99, and for $70 for a 5500 128MB card, that is great. + ETT is a small company, but I know they are good!

ALSO, look at the kickass cooling on this thing, you could really overclock this nicely. Compare the cooling to that Chaincrap card, and think carefully. Otherwise, go with this card.

This is a Ti card, and beats that Chaincrap in most things, plus can be overclocked much better.

Okay...I've settled for this one.

XFX GeForce MX 4000 / 64MB DDR / AGP 8X / VGA / TV Out / Video Card

This thing isn't great, but it's dirt cheap, ($67) it comes with 40 dollars in rebates, it has a 2 year warranty (The chaintech only had a one month) and it doesn't have a fan...just a heatsink, so it won't break as quickly.
