    I stabbed my current fx 5600 with a screw driver, now it doesnt work.

    Taking this "opertunity" to upgrade to a 6600GT I scowered the net for the best deal on an AGP version.

    reseller rating is 8.8, and they seem like a good e-tail store

    http://guru3d.com/ gave this card a really good review

    Enjoy!

    dang, they have a respectable price on the 6800gt @ $335 + shipping

    If anyone uses these guys, let us know. Not a great selection but prices are pretty good.

    I ordered two 512mb PC3200 SoDIMMs from them a few weeks back. The service was allright although their USPS shipping method sucks because USPS doesn't seem to update their tracking info at all (my package was delivered last week yet still shows as "Shipping information received" on the USPS tracking site).

    I have a pixelview 5600 (dont laugh, I needed a card ASAP 18 months ago) and all I can say is that it works without problems, but I couldnt get it to overclock. If you are looking for a reference board, I'd be happy with it. If you are looking for a monster overclock, I wouldnt go with it. But thats my experience for 1 card produced 18 months ago. Check the more modern reviews.

    Oh, their software bundle sucked then, I dunno how it is today :D

    If you switch the shipping to "ground" (still free) then it ships Fed Ex... My card will be here Saturday!
    Yeah the software bundle is non existent but Its the hardware I want.
    thats a good price on from the egg, but I never buy anything with rebates.

    i had a pixelview tv tuner and the quality on it was pretty bad. the product manual didnt even match the tuner in the box. i probably would avoid them in the future. good thing the egg refuned my money :)
