    Hello and welcome to techspot!

    Have you already ruled out the simple stuff?

    1. Updated to the latest drivers for the 6600
    2. Updated your motherboard's AGP/chipset drivers
    3. If 1 and 2 didn't fix you up, check how old your current bios is, and consider updating it.

    did those games run well before on your old graphics card? the 81.89 drivers that u have are good enough for the 6600 since the newer 81.98 version basically helps SLI and recognition of 6800 GS. i don't know exactly whats wrong here but if i may make a suggestion...u should set your screen refresh rate to...75 Hz or...80 maybe if it's supported...60 is kinda low on the frequency table.

    i remember reading somewhere that some of hte stream have problems with the servers and such that cause teh computer crash. Did you update the game to the latest patches?

    Check your +5V, it should be above 4.8V. a marginally weak PS can be a problem when rinning in 3D mode. I prefer the 77.76 drivers for the 6 series video cards.
