The 6600 GT is weak.

GDDR3 is useless with a 128-bit interface. And 8 pipelines? Forget it.

You'll get much more out of the 6800.

The 6600GT is the best card in it's price range. The 6600GT if fine for any gaming task right now, so get it.

I've used them. Decent cards, but they're just not for the enthusiast.

What's wrong about it for an enthuist???

I am an enthuist and I have it. The only person it's not "good enough" for are rich spoiled kids who have to have the best.
