yep can run just about all recent applications today... and will suit you fine. The other are right you're better off with a 6600 GT 128 mb then a 256 mb 6600. If it's in your budget i would recommend getting a geforce 6800 and then unlocking the vertex shaders and the pipelines... will notice a difference between 6600 and 6800.

If you decide on the 6800 just search some sites with instructionsfor unlocking the vertex shaders and pipelines... trust me you won't be dissatisfied.

Well 512 is enough, but id still recommend upgrading to 1GB. And about the manufacturer, everyone has said only good things about Corsair, myself, always used Kingston and love it.

That's because nVidia isn't licensing wholesellers anymore. Well at least not for the 7800. Every company selling the 7800's other than nVidia, gets them straight from nVidia, prebuilt. They slap their sticker on it, and BFG overclocks them, but other than that, XFX still sucks.
