hell, my 6600le plays CS:S no problem

It can play Quake 4 on medium settings at 1024x768 silky smooth (well, it never dips below 25fps, so not quite silky smooth but far from unplayable)

6600? pfft.
I play on a GeForce 4 Ti 4200, which is inferrior to the 6600 by a long shot, and the game runs perfectly fine.

Joe go for a 6800 GS that will be future proff it can handle the new games flawlessly and its really not expensive here is a link
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130267
The 6200 and 6600 series can run HL-2 on full dont know how they do it but i think Source Engine owns it doesent demand a lot and it gives candy eye graphics but FEAR will run on low or med with the 6200. Thats my advice go with the 6800 GS just put a little more cash

All you need for CS:S to play good is an x300

Select a game in the drop down menu top right of the screen then you need to hit the ""Can you run it?" button a few times.

You'll end up with a graph like shown below, and a whole list of your specs and whats required

(Mine for FEAR)
