Rip 9800pro

Hi,
My 9800pro has just died for the second time and I have been given the option to exchange it for a different card. I've been looking at the 6600GT Agp cards and was wondering which one the following cards would be best:

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...tml?LEA-GF66GT

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...tml?NOV-GF66GT

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...tml?ASU-GF66GT

Any help appreciated,
Thanks

Well the Novatech is the cheapest but may not be the best overclocker, the XFX might also be worth considering as they are quite a good brand.
Other than that one card is much the same as another and it's pot luck as to how overclockable a card is.
I'd recomend swapping the cooling for a Zalman VF700-Cu, but read this first

If you are still looking at the leadtek Geforce 6800LE 128Mb I'm pretty damn sure I saw that for sale over at overclockers.co.uk for £40 less!!

I had to get my card from novatech as they were swapping my faulty 9800pro for it. I finally opted for the leadtek 6600gt, thanks for the advice
