Experiences with a Geforce 6600 GT

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I decided to purchase an AGP card to last until I finally upgrade to a newer system that has a PCI-E slot. Would a Geforce 6600 GT be able to hold out for another year or so before I get my new machine, or would I be unable to run any new games that come out.

I wouldn't suggest buying one, unless you could get it for very cheap.

The most graphics intense game I have so far is World of Warcraft, and its much more forgiving than Battlefield 2, Counter-Strike Source, Age of Empires, etc. Could I get away with that Geforce card until I buy my new machine or should I just go for the 7600 GT and be done with it.

I have a 6600gt and am quite happy with it. I have noticed that it is starting to show its age with the latest games. If you are not concerned with the latest graphics options turned on and everything set to med/low detail, then go for a 6600gt, a 7600gt is my choice but based on my very limited funds am looking at maybe a 7600gs and just overclock the buggery out of it If you want something now and funds permit 7600gt is the way to go.

If you really dont wanna worry about graphics for a little bit , or until you get your system, cause remember, computers are spiking in technology right now, DX10, G80, R600, AM2, Conroe, Quadcore, 65nm ect..

this card will set you up pretty nicely, You could play any game out right now on medium settings with good enjoyable FPS, my personal opinion would be to save up a hundred more bucks for this 7900GT, that is, if you have a PCI-E slot.

A 6600GT Overclocked can have decent performance on most games. I play everything from Sims2 to BF2 and CounterStrike. BF2 runs great on full AA, and all the other graphical goodies. My best 3dmark05 score is 4026, and that's respectible.
