Many questions concerning Geforce 6600Gt

  1. Hello. I am upgrading my system and I have a old system, by that I mean I have an AGP slot and not a PCI slot of videocard. So I tried to find suitable videocards for me and decided to buy a Geforce 6600 GT.

    --I want to know that is there any major difference between 256mb and 128mb version of the card because I could not find a 256mb version of the agp.

    --Can I run the AGP 8x card on AGP 4x?

    --How long is this card going to work fine, I mean for how long I dont need an upgrade after buying this card?

    Thanks.

    The 6600GT is considered an "entry level" card. It can handle today's newer games at medium settings and get decent framerates.

    There is not a big difference between the 256mb and 128mb version. Both perform similarly.

    Yes, you can run the 8x card on an AGP4x motherboard.

    It all depends on how picky you are, and at how many fps you feel a game becomes unplayable. You'll probably be OK for a year or so if you are OK with turning down the settings of the games. But a year max would be my guess....
