Welcome to the Forum

Dude, overclock that puppy. It's Nvidia, so I suggest downloading Coolbits. It's excellent for overclocking. After installing Coolbits, you'll want to right click on your desktop, go to "Properties" - "Settings" - "Advanced" - "6600gt Nvidia" then on the left side look for "Clock Frequency Settings"

There is where you'll do your overclocking.

Step up the Core Frequency by five, test, step up by five, test, etc until you get to the point where it won't function. Possibly your computer will restart so you'll want to have written down the MHz after each successful test.

Once you reach the limit, back it off by 5 and that's your best Core Frequency.

Do the same with your memory.

Badda Bing Badda Boom you've got your card overclocked.

I have my FX 5700 LE overclocked faster than your stock 6600gt. Getting 2779 on 3DMark 03. So you should get MUCH better results.

Enjoy!

Very nice, upgrading graphics card are very happy moments in a persons life. Oh yea, you can change your PC specs now to fit your new card.

Congrats and let us know how high you can get once you oc that puppy. If you can't get Coolbits you can always get Rivatuner, it works just as well.

Overclocking when U get new components is 90% of the fun, the other 7% is installing it and then 3% enjoying it at stock...or at least that's what the cool people do

You can get coolbits (newer version is called NVteak) at www.guru3d.com

That GT should overclock to around 575/1180 pretty easily, but don't be dissapointed if it doesn't, just giving u a good target

Get your memory up as high as it can go, then the core. Raising the memory will give you more performance gain than the core.Both obviously is the way to to, but get the mem as high as you can and then raise the core. I got my MSI 6600GT to 580 Mhz on stock cooling, and easily 600 Mhz with the Zalman VF700-alcu. I got 11k in 3DMark03, but with an A64 3000+ @ 2.8 Ghz. You should pretty easily get around 8k to 9k.
