I'm gonna have to go with no, the specs are all wrong, I don't think there is a 256mb 6600GT, only the regular 6600 comes with that amount of memory, it only has a 128bit memory interface, and it's an 8 pipeline chip not 16, and finally if it's an AGP card, then the heatsink is positioned wrong as the agp version needs a bridge chip which means the heatsink is higher up and usually rotated 45°
Also there is no directX 9.1, it's 9c that has SM3 support, and the core speed of a 6600GT is 500mhz, not 350mhz and the 6600 is on a 110nm process not 130
It read more like the spec sheet for a 6800GT but thats not a brand new card, and the price is too low

It isnt the seller's fault.

Xpertvision make that card, and they are idiots.

Hes just copied all that information from the Xpertvision website.

He made one mistake, in that he doesnt know what the card is, and hes printed the 6800GT specs for it, including 16 pipes and 350mhz core

these garbage stats are from Xpertvision:

* Core clock - 400MHz (6800 Ultra) / 350 MHz (6800 GT) / 325 MHz (6800)
* High-Speed GDDR3 Memory Interface (6800 Ultra and 6800 GT only)
* 256-Bit Memory Interface with Advanced Memory Control
* 128MB / 256MB support
* Microsoft® DirectX® 9.1 support(DX9.1) pixel shaders 2.0+
* Microsoft® DirectX® 9.1 support(DX9.1) vertex shaders 2.0+
* OpenGL1.5(and lower) support
* NVIDIA® CineFX™ 3.0 engine
* NVIDIA® UltraShadow™ II technology
* NVIDIA® Intellisample™ 3.0 technology
* NVIDIA® Forceware™ unified software environment (USE)
* NVIDIA® Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
* NVIDIA® nView™ multi-display technology
* NVIDIA® Digital Vibrance Control™ 3.0 (DVC)
* 128-bit studio-precision color
* 64-Bit Texture Filtering and Blending
* Superscalar 16-Pipe GPU Architecture
* On-Chip Video Processor
* 128-Bit Studio-Precision Computation
* Full-Speed 32-Bit Color Precision
* Full MPEG Support
* Advanced Adaptive De-Interlacing
* Video Scaling and Filtering
* Integrated TV Encoder
* Dual 400MHz RAMDACs
* 0.13 Micron Process Technology

note the direct X 9.1 support. DX9.1 hasnt been ruled out, but hasnt been confirmed or anything either. Microsoft dont even know if they will make it, so Xpertvision sure dont.
