    NVIDIA has launched the 6600GT, check anandtech's review

    Looks like ATI X600XT has got finally some beating in the mid range
    This card will retain in India for Less the Rs 16,000 after 4 months atleast

    The X700 would be the competitor, not the X600, IMHO.

    Yup no humble opinions required, the x700 is targeted @ the same consumer range as the 6600 series.

    16000???????? I thought it's retail price (in the US) was 199$. How can the price double (well almost) when it comes to India?

    :evil: Man! why don't the ministry bring down the tax on GPU's, which are one the most important parts?

    By the way if someone get's this card from the US will he have to pay custom duties & all other stuff.

    the yhave already removed the duty on computer parts, but still, there is transport charges, port charges, fraight, international texes etc, so the cost will be atleast 30% over the price in $, this is not only with India, even Europe pays this much via VAT

    I thought that a person can bring a laptop from the us without paying any taxes.Many people bring peripherals from the us free of charge.I was thinking of getting a 6600gt from the us through a freind.

    btw Is malaysia cheaper or the U.S?
