Default Well...*Sigh*

Since that 7800GT stuff isn't going to happen (probably) I'm looking for a graphics card. Price range of $250(USD) tops. SLI Support too.

There's this:

eVGA 256-P2-N383-TX Geforce 6800 256MB 256-bit DDR PCI Express x16 Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...31#DetailSpecs

It's got 12 pixel pipelines enabled so 4 more can be unlocked as compared to the 8 on the 6600GTs. Or this:

ASUS EN6600GT/TOP/TD/128M Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - OEM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121531

That's got some crazy clock for a 6600GT stock. But I would get the 6800 video card.

Yeah bummer eh? Haven't gotten the moolah back yet, but then again, it's the weekend. I'm sure I'll get it back. But yeah, I'm still searching for a good card. I've had my eye on this card (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130231) for a while. It's also fairly cheap so I could overclock and run SLI.

It's a good choise. Even 1 of those should run all of the newest games with high settings and get good fps.

BTW, I got an email saying that they cancelled my order and that my card has not been charged, but it was already charged and I haven't seen my money go back into my account. If this ain't fixed by friday, I'm filing a complaint with the BBB.
