    $100 for Geforce 6600? You gotta be kidding man. You will get that card in China. Off the place where they sell stolen stuff.

    Best recommedation around that price is the Radeon 9550, but even so I doubt you will be able to get it for $100.

    How decent can ya get for $100..... You'll get what you pay for bud. Hate to be the bearer of bad news but its worth forking out an extra hundred or so for somethin worthwhile

    That's a bit like going to a brothel asking for the full package but only wanting to pay $20.

    Your expectations are far to high for $100.

    You may need to rethink budget...

    Never thought I'd get the chance to use this line, but anyone remember the contractors triangle on The Fast and the Furious?

    Cheap + Good = Not Fast

    Cheap + Fast = Not good

    Good + Fast = Not cheap

    Applies to more than cars...
