    129.99 ? :D I did look at the 3850 cards but when overclocked they cannot touch this card and it does have a better cooler. Plus even in a month the resale will be good on this card because of the warranty.

    I also like this card but I'm not sure about the cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814103050

    and this one aswell http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131095

    How about you buy my 8800GT 256mb :D that make a great back-up card for a mere $100 bucks!

    I ordered this card for 129.00 XFX GeForce 8800 GT Video Card - Zalman Edition, 512MB DDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV and a soft voltage mod this card should come very close to 8800gts/9800gtx speeds at alot less money. Plus I hate loud hot coolers. I also like the warranty.

    I had XFX on my 76's....loved the warranty, altho they are a bit on the slow side for RMA's. 3 weeks was fast for my 3 experiences with them!
