More aboutsystem 6600gt upgrade hold
See if you can upgrade to an X800 GTO or 6800 GS. Even an X800 XT if you can afford it. It'd make a nice difference.
The 6600 GT is decent though, if you have to keep it.
if you sell the 6600 then you might be able to afford the 7800gt, between 300-400cad
i say wait if you dont see any slowdowns, save the case till later for the next generation to come out and get a 7800 or a next gen.
i had a 6600 and the sitch to 6800gs was good but not worth it to me i say save your cash.
