    Is there a reason why Best Buy? It has been my experience that Best Buy is more expensive than other places.

    You might settle on the card and let us look for the best deal.

    Try New Egg.You can get a Nvidia 6600 GT for $ 154 US.Check out the link.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...InnerManu=1280

    Sorry,the above link is for PCI Express.This is for AGP.http://www.nt-micro.com/index.asp?Pa...D&ProdID=10806

    I have one of these cards and it is slightly better than ATI's 9800 XT.It benchmarks with high scores on 3D Mark03 and 05 as well as Codecreatures and Aquamark.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Like everyone else said - 6600 GT's are the best in your price range.

    If you can spend just a little extra - get the 246 version.

    This would appear to accomplish everything. Price ($154.99 U.S.) and 256 MB memory.

    One thing missing, thats not the GT

    The 128mb 6600 GT works just fine

    This card will beat the 6600 GT http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...009366&CatId=0

    I don't know anything about Canadian prices, since Nvidia 6800's seem to be cheap now look for a 6800 or better yet 6800 OC models.

    No, don't get that one unless you have a new MB thats "PCI Express" this is the one http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/prodde...49&catid=20397

    Man those prices are high at Best Buy, any reason why you have to buy from there ? Maybe cuz Canada ? don't know $$ exchange rate ??? maybe thats low price in US

    I'd get this one, except I hate rebates http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...009366&CatId=0
