Yeah, thats kewl, and thanks
Just look on the web okay? Just to check for manufacturers that might offer slightly better overclocking if thats what your looking for, than others.
XFX (sometimes comes pre-overclocked)/BFG (overclock cards already past factory when you get it, and you can force more out of them), eVGA, Sapphire (sometimes okay), so theres a definiete choice, but mostly, they are all the same.
You'll just find, one manufacturer will use a different PCB colour, or a different fan that may run cooler, or be louder, etc than the reference Nvidia one, so just little things like that are good to look out for.
I have a ATI 9800PRO 128MB, and I've just ordered a AGP BFG 6800GS for myself
Don't be a fan boy anyway. Just go for whats best at the time. You can show your mates the scores, etc.
Its definietly the best mid range card out and Nvidia tend to offer more than ATI for the same price range.
I'll tell you how I find the card, since I'm getting it tomorrow
Haha, I put all my details in, and accidently pressed Order, and the order went through....hehe. oh well, it'll be a good upgrade.
