From what I read they are all good, but I know that you guys have never steared me wrong in hardware, so b4 I buy it I would like to know which one is the best for the price I'm leaning towards the Aopen cuz of the two games and a $15 mail in rebate.

Nevermind this thread I'm postive I'm going with the MSI now after reading a few more reviews and realizin what all it comes with :).

They're pretty much all the same but since the AOpen one has the mail-in rebate, you might as well get that one.

Manager screwed up and I got the wrong video card, I got a 9600 vanilla...the xt was 60 bucks more @[email protected], so I said screw it and will be returning it when my new card comes in....thats it in a nutshell.

Went for the MSI, the reviews said it clocked higher and it came with three games :)

I've concluded that MSI is one of my fav. video card providers. This was a sweet deal. I got a 6600GT that from what reviews I've read overclocks like a dream. And it came with TONS of awesome software. Prince of Persia SOT, XIII, Uru, Splinter Cell, Heaven and Hell, American Conquest, Deus EX Invisible War, Typhoon Rising, as well as a few other games I've never heard of but will try out, some DVD software, virtual drive software, and restore it! pro, all of this for $197!!! That and newegg got it to me in TWO DAYS FREE SHIPPING. Life is grand :D.

What is the best tool for overclocking nvidia cards? I've heard coolbits is good, but some people say that RivaTuner is better.

I don't really like RivaTuner, as I think it's interface is messy. It does have more options than coolbits tho. I'd rather use coolbits personaly.

Ok game wise POP SOT, XIII, and URU are the only full blown games all the others are demos :p, but all the other software is full :), yeah after using both I like coolbits.
