Default 6600gt problems

i got a eVGA 6600gt 8xagp card yesterday...and it doesnt run as good as i was hoping.

i played around with RiveTuner and noticed that in
system tweaks, under AGP it says:

AGP transfer rate [determined by driver] PCI
AGP sideband addressing [determined by driver] off
AGP fastwrites [determined by driver] off

Make sure you have the latest drivers for the card. Also, if it is a specific game you're having problems with, get the latest patch for that.
