    No, the 6600Gt is still a pretty decent card tbh. :)
    Work wonders at 1280x1024 and under.

    so what's the best? lol. Im Silly now. hahaha. please help me.
    I've search that they have the same performance. On the 6600gt the only thins is that the performance is best but on the AtI 9800 is about on the display.

    that's on PCI-Express though, the guy is looking for an AGP card. The 6600 GT rules the rooster on AGP for the time being.

    what about a 6800? You can get those for AGP about the same price as a 6600GT and you can try and unlock some pipelines :naughty:

    ^nice one.
    even if you cant get the full 16x6 running, the 12x5/6 would be better than the 6600gt, again ive had a 6800nu :)

    I just found this site and it looks like another good one. i have the 6600GT and i love it. i am curious what you meaning by unlocking pipelines. how do you do that? and what is the max temp for the 6600GT without being dangerous? i am usually steady at about 63C Loaded for hours OCed just a little. how high can i go safely?

    This makes me want to ask a question. Buying a new agp card now, what's the best bet? 6600gt, 6800, or one of them fancy x*** ati cards?

    X800GT's are supposed to be very good for the money, especially the IceQ TURBO ones. A 6800 or 6800LE (otherwise 6800NU) has some pixel pipelines and vertex shaders locked off. These can be unlocked by softmodding http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=94812 so that the card has as many pipelines as say a 6800GT.
    For Example: A 6800LE has 8 pixel pipelines and 4 vertex shaders. The NV40 chip has upto 16 pixel pipelines and 6 vertex shaders, which can be unlocked. Sometimes a couple of pipelines are faulty (which is why they have been locked) so you can't use all 16*6, but this is not always the case. Either way, you can still normally get something extra out of an AGP 6800.

    I dont know if X800GT's can be softmodded but i suspect they can. I'm pretty sure 6600GT's can't be because they are different chip to the 6800's (6600's are NV43 whereas 6800's are NV40). 6600GT is the most you can possibly get from that particular chip in terms of pipelines.

    Me neither until I found that, its not even listed on the Gecube website, but its definitely AGP from the picture, if thats really it of course. It does have the GT* heatsink...

    Sorry for the hi-jack but it isnt worth a new thread. Would that card be worth getting as ive got agp and im getting confused what is the best at the moment. looking to spend around less than £150 on a reasonable card.

    thanks
