Default GeForce 6600LE 256

Hey, Im looking to upgrade my computer and well I think ive found a good deal on a video card but I cant find any first hand reviews of it. Does anyone here own or at one time owned the GeForce 6600LE 256mb card from nVidia? Its 108$ (in my budget) and looks like a promising card. Please if you have tried this card let me know if its worth my cash.

Thanks in advance! Andy

If you can afford it, any 6800 series card will outperform a 6600 series card. If you don't want to spend the few extra bucks on the 6800 series, then definately try to spring for the 6600GT. The extra cash is worth it.

what he said, go for a 6800, dont go with a 256mb GT cause i heard it decreases performance and its still pretty expensive, so i would just stick with the 6800 and unlock the pipelines and vertex shader
