Under load the card shoots up to 76 degrees on average. Hmm...............am I doing something wrong here, or did all the review sites get way better coolers than me with their cards?
I have virtually the exact same temps with my Leadtek 6600gt (540/1000). A little dissapointing but the card handles all games and benchmarks without lockups, reboots.
My case-cooling is not that great though with 1 intake + 1 exhaust fan, temp at 35-39 C. Gonna improve airflow and get that temp down.

Other than that it's been great.

I have had no problems with my msi 6600 gt and it gave me a big performance boost over my old msi 5900 xt!

Voted for "It was fine after I tweaked it a bit."

My Gigabyte 6600GT AGP is pretty nice, and definetly a huge boost over my FX5900XT

Those FX cards really were crap in comparison, but Nvidia got it right this time

Only issues I had were driver related. The det 6x.xx drivers caused crashes in UT2k4, so I upgraded to 71.80 and that caused image corruption in Halo. But now I'm using 71.25 and everything seems to be behaving itself. Only thing I noticed is a slight studder in UT2k4 once in awhile when playing online, and I'm still troubleshooting that. I've seen it before though, and I'm confident I'll figure out what's causing it again.

Overall I'd say I'm pretty happy, but not extremely happy. Once I get all the kinks out though, it'll be perfect. Performance wise this card is a winner

Won't run? What happens? What brand of 6600GT? What makes you think the 6800 will help? Keep me posted!

That is so strange. I'm sorry to you have to spend extra money, but at least you'll have a better card.

I don't understand why a 6600GT would be incompatible with a motherboard but a 6800 would work fine. Weird

Nice poll so far, but some of these votes should be disqualified because they haven't replied as to what is up with their cards...

Yeah, it would be nice to hear from the people who either just had no luck at all, or initially had some problems then managed to get over them...and how

I built an HTPC and needed component video to my HDTV. 6800 series video cards do not support component out video. Besides, my next high end video card will be PCI-e and my 6800gt was agp.
