    Hi there a friend of mine on an Athlon 3200+ XP chip and 2 gig of ram on an Nforce 2 system needs a new card, it will either be a 6800XT 128 meg or the 6600 GT 256 meg. Which is the better card? I heard you can unlock the 6800XT cards.

    Which would be better for his system?

    6600GT with 256DDR3 will be fine.

    Are these made anymore? can't find one anywhere, I would love to look on Members market but am no where near accessing it yet. If anyone spots one for sale on the members market or a 6600GT could they be kind enough to pass on my contact detals.

    Thanks.
