Default Re: GeForce 6600 good buy?

I think so.

I use go 6600 128MB PCIE and have no problem running latest games... I can play f.e.a.r. at 1024*768 w/o AA but everything at maxxed settings including 16x AF. no frame limit goes below 16 very rarely and honestly, I have no problem. Farcry and other HDR supporting games work with Quincnuxx AA on at around 15~45 fps at 1027*768.

I've been playing WOW at 1280*1024 with quincnuxx AA and 16AF on, and never had problem with FPS.

Quake 4 works fine as well without AA but with 16 AF. I never felt any kind of stuttering.

HL2 works very fine, 1280*1024 with quincnuxx AA and 16AF on, very rarely goes under 15 fps.

The LE only has 4 pixel pipelines, whereas the standard 6600 (And the GT) has 8. If you're on PCIe I'd look into a 7600GS, it's much better and doesn't cost that much more.
