Will it fit on my board a7a266 its kinda tight in there? Should i get the gigabyte or the radeon, and is the gigabyte on newegg the 275/275 cause that is what it says. Thanks

It's 250/250, with 4ns ram. The retail Ati 8500 is 3.6ns ram. It is however, the best LE out that I'm aware of with those big sinks and hardware-monitoring. Skip just got one and was able to clock it up to the 280's/280's range which is not quite as good as most retail 8500's clock to.... 300/300 on average. Very good value and features though for a few $ less than the retail Ati. But a retail Ati 8500 will do better especially once you spend some cash for cooling parts that is...

Gigabyte will release their high-end non-LE version (possibly superior to retail ATi 8500's)very soon, though it will sell for around $250.
