Well, it finally arrived.

My new Asus N6600GT TD 128MB :D

First impressions from someone coming from a Gainward FX5700 :

Holy ****! :D This beast is fast! :)

Now, on a more serious note, haven't had too much time to play with benchmarks and all, but the first thing I noticed is that the cooler is quite quiet (ok, bad choice of words ;)). It's a whole copper cooler with a small (I'd say something like 2 in.) fan. Coming from a ZM80D-HP cooled 5700 I feared the noise from the 6600gt, but I have to say that it's quite bearable. I'll be putting a VF700-AlCu as soon as I can put my hands on one, but for now, it ain't so bad.

I'll post you some score later on. If you want to see some particular benchmark, plz let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Btw, what driver release would you suggest for it ? Right now I'm using the same 66.93 I was using with the 5700...

Congrats on the new card. I like the 71.50s but I think most prefer one of the ones in the 67.xx range. Just check a few threads in the driver forum and you'll probably find what it is.
