  1. Just wondering what your experiences with this card are.......

    How outdated is it ?

    How soon will I have to update it to get the Best performance with games such as FEAR, and oblivion ?

    What do you think....

    Well, if you are looking for a card that is going to last a while, I'd say that is not the one for you. The 6600GT is really the BOTTOM of what is considered acceptable for gaming these days.

    That 6600 will probably be able to run any game you toss at it, but you'll be turning all the settings down and getting somewhat lower framerates. And as for the games that'll be coming out in a 6 months or so, I think it is safe to assume that the 6600s will be choking on them.

    If you can, go up to the 6600GT.
