    Seriously Considering 6800nu

    What you think? Prices are close enough it doesn't matter. Performance should be better than the 6600GT I already have and I can switch my Zalman fan over easily I think.
    Come on. Give me an excuse to buy this thing.

    GO FOR IT!!!

    I'd personally go with the XFX has it has Dual DVI outputs, which are nice incase you decide to upgrade to a LCD ( or 2 LCD )

    well speaking from experience, the 6800nu was a good buy a year ago at around 280 and is still a great buy, just much cheaper. yea, definitely get it. it handles very well, though i never used either of those brands, so go with whichever you prefer

    well, the strippers would work, she would be so mad at you for going to them, that she wouldn't even care about the Video Card

    If you've used both of those, I wouldn't worry about it to much.
    Don't tell her any thing.
    I've done a hardware install when the wife was away for a few hours.
    They don't know what's inside the box.
    Did a sound card that way.
