Default Is this graphics card any good?

I just got as pc with a nvidia geforce 6600le. Is it good?

So far I've found it's struggling with halo, and I can't really see a difference in gta3 when I was using a geforce2 mx.

Will it at least play half-life 2 at high settings?

Thanks

Could be the RAM, erm..I dont think the video card would struggle with that though, how much space have you left on yr HDD, might have something to do with lack of space on yr HDD, are you in a position to reformat? A good old spring clean will defo fix it.

Joxely you need to know what you're talking about first, then help, k?

Look, how much RAM is on that 6600le?

Let me guess, 128?

Who's the maufacturer, and is that AMD 3000 a Socket 939 or Socket 754?

^^

The Ram is 256, don't know what manufacturer.

Hey guys, sorry I've been away.

Just formatted the whole computer and reinstalled all the drivers and guess what? The card works like a charm.

The guy in the shop must have installed it wrong or something

Just one question, what would be the cheapest graphics card that would play doom 3 on high settings?

Thanks

I have Doom3 and played it with a 6600GT just fine on high settings.

The 6600 LE is basically a underclocked 6600 GT. It uses the same NV43 core.
