Well my 9800 pro has been good to me, but it was time to upgrade.

Bought from Newegg
MSI k8n neo4 plat. SLI
EVGA 6800GT (just one for now)
AMD 64 3200+ 90nm
2x 512mb of pc3200 from crucial.
535w p/s

I hope to get atleast 25 to 50% improvment with my new video card.

I made the switch back too. My last pc was self-built AMD/ATI 9700 Pro. But I was tired of the problems NWN and Xpand Rally had with ATI so I came back to Nvidia.

My last Nvidia card was a RIVA TNT by Creative. Then I went 3dfx and then to ATI. Now my new PC is a Gateway WiNviditel (Well, there used to be Wintel for Windows + Intel- so if you add in Nvidia... WiNviditel?) with a 6600. My old forums I used to visit were AMDMB (for AMD mobos) and Rage3D (for ATI) now I have neither and came over here!

The 6600 performs better than the 9700 without FSAA or AF, but looks worse. The 9700 does FSAA and AF much better- AF is almost undoable with this 6600, but there again it's a mid-line non-GT card. NWN and XR look like new games and I have rediscovered UT2K3 :eek: The 9700 Pro looks better though hands down, even if this 6600 runs a lot faster.

Make sure you get the official 71.89 and NVtweak + drivercleaner. Ehm, the 76.44 are beta's, but they're really good on my pc.

I'm going to reformat my hard drive, so I shouldn't have any problems.

What was the price tag on the whole thing?

I also got from 9600 Pro to 6600 GT. Never been happier.
