    YEY Just got my 6600GT bye bye 5600 lol


    Just got back with my new 6600GT and it's time to kiss my 5600 bye bye lol.

    I am hoping for a HUGE perf boost form this card, as I have never had a GT or ultra type card before, I have always only been able to bye the LE versions and so on.

    I nearly convinced myself to just get the 6600LE, but with the difference in perf between the two, and the difference in price, I thought why not, go ahead and treat yourself..

    HEH - I cant wait to actually try some games like HL2 and UT2004 with AA/AF on instead of off lol.

    Wish me fun times people, cause I got myself a decent card at last heh

    Time to install my new baby..... now were are my tools... hrmm

    I got a 6600gt to replace my 5600u. There is no way that 5600U will be installed again.

    Lotta people I think went from the GF4 series to the GF6 series I think. Thats when I finally saw enough of a performance jump to justify the upgrade from the 4800SE to a 6600GT.

    I guess a lot of us just weren't impressed with the improvements of the FX series.
