    Today,there is no value of 6600,it is extreme low end card now.if you want to buy a worth card then for nvidia 7600GS.

    Geforce 6600 is not extreme low end. It is simply low end and worth 3-4k I think. Buy it if you don't plan to game and can't find anything in this same range.

    Get a 7600GS @ 6k or a 7300GS at around 3-4K

    7300gs may be worse than 6600.

    7500 for 356mb back them may have been relatively ok

    the 6600GT card is ok for all games by now, but the only prob is with the upcoming games with DX10 support. In that case GF7 would bebetter even if GF7 also doesn't support DX10. cool down man..its a nice card..Was it a PCIE?

    6600GT is a low end card and competitive geforce 7 cards aren't going to be much better. None will have Dx10 support either.

    You need to get a better card, there is no second option.

    Anyway 6600GT should be able to play FEAR at 10X7 Med or upto 10X7 Med-max depending upon the kind of performance you want. Don't use AA AF softshadows

    Legends should run fine at 10X7 MAX no AA no AF, next gen content off

    Which system do you have?

    Ya ..guys in here r underestimating cards. 6600GT is a gr8 card is not a low nd one. It can handle all games at max/med @1024*768 nd some heavy effects like HDR,bloom,softshadows,AAhigher than2x nd AF higher than 4x all turned off. Turning off these details won't make a game look that bad either. Anyone having a 17" CRT should't need nytin more than a 6600GT. But all that matters is better future proof. U can get a more future proof 7600GS for same price nd a lil more perfomance.
    SO a 6600GT has the same standard of a 7600GS as far as perfomance is concerned.

    the freezing is probably due to low ram nd 512 is not just enough for gaming as with such a card one would probably opt for more texture details nd it requires more mem nd 512 MB is not just enough for than.
    But in a system with a 6200 card, even 512 MB is enough for gaming as one wont set the texture details that high nd so less mem is required.

    It's ok for me bcoz i am not a hardcore gamer.I usually play games like Cricket,PES,FIFA and GTA titles.And i think it can support these games for another two years.And yes its a PCI-E card.:p

    Intel 2.47 is just somewhat enough for todays games. I think the 512 MB mem[nd also in single channel as doesn't support dual] is the first bottleneck nd the second comes the interface[the AGP4x] nd the third is the proc.
