didn't MSI bring out a 6800GT, that had crap specs, it was clocked slower or something or had less pipes? Rings a bell. Just ensure that it has the same specs. Keep in mind a Leadtek 6800GT, they are alse a great card for the $$$. The coller on them kicks butt, but is heavy and 1" high.

I would take the MSI.... HuuuuuuuuuGE bundle :rolleyes:

In fact, I took the MSI NX-6600GT-128 cause of this :nod:

 

Lifetime warranty on a videocard?!? You will have a hard time to sell it for a little 150$ cdn in 2 years. and I don't think you will keep it for even 5 years...

I bought a AIW9700Pro 2 years ago, it still under warranty for 3 full years and ppl are not even interested to buy it for 150$ canadian, Retail package and everything included :rolleyes:
