It is to replace my ATI 9550 256MB card that I currently have. I seem to be having a problem with Catalyst drivers past version 4.10 so I have to go for an NVIDIA card this time.
So are these cards any good, is there any issues I should be aware of and can I expect there to be a marked improvment compared to my current card? I just want to play GTR FIA with more than the 20 - 25 frames per second I am getting at the moment!
Haha, Catalyst. So many people's been having problems with that. Don't worry though. Once you switch over to the all powerful Nvidia graphic boards, drivers will not be an issue. Just remember if you install new drivers as they come out, delete the older display adapter (older driver versions in Control Panel), and install the new Nvidia display drivers.
The 6600GT is a great performer for the price. IMO, it is the minimum you should get. There are no issues with the 6600GT, they are just built too good.
