  1. ok....i just got a 6600gt. i like it. its a great card. however......i am trying to make it better. for instance, the nvidia demo titled "nalu" has one specific for a 6600. it is slow. very slow. sometimes even stops completely. the dusk demo barely works. they are both very choppy with the frames. why is this? i'm even overclocking it and its still slow. any ideas? half life 2 is working pretty good with it as well as doom3. but geez, i was hoping it would be able to handle a demo or 2, those things are so cool. i'd really appreciate any kind of help, thanks,

    I think the 6600 cards are over-hyped. Radeon 9800 Pros and XTs usually out perform them. Buth the video cards performance also depends alot on the speed of the CPU.

    yeah.......well thats an ati guy's opinion. i've always been an nvidia fan and this card rocks. i just wanna soup it up a bit. i've had so many problems at work (lan cafe) with ati cards, i would never buy one on purpose.
