How can you guys play this at max settings? Lower resolutions? My machine can barely crank out 22fps on max settings 1280x1024, and I spent a small fortune on it. I doubt any AGP card will get you close, but I'm sure there are a bunch that will make the game look very good. I agree, check the list on toms hardware.

For an extra 30 bucks he can grab one of these:

with a bios flash you should be able to unlock the extra 4 piplines (depending on the core) it also has 256bit memory interface

for an extra $30 he could also get a 7600GT and that will manhandle a GTO

u probably won't be using AA on highly demanding games like fear or oblivion if u only have a 6600GT.

Well I have a 7600GT and it struggles with everything on max so if you want to run it at high settings it will have to be a 7800 or 7900 or ATI equivelant
