that's a very nice setup...

that card should be just fine w/ that.

just remember, to use the SLI dual vid-card "properly", you have to use the identical card..so later, you'll prolly want a 2nd 6600...

but then, when it comes time, you'll want a faster card, so that means you'll have to shell out yet a different card..

what i'm sayin' is....if you want to utilise that mobo, i'd get nothing less than a 6800.....now, cause you'll want another one later.

but if you don't care, then yes...the 6600 should suit you fine.

i'm lovin' my AMD 64 system too!

edit: forget what i said about the dual vid-cards..i thought it was an SLI mobo...sorry.

Well , if your gonna get a 6600 gfx card then make sure you get the 6600 gt , I have the MSI 6600 gt and it runs pretty damn good . Also the GT version has a faster core speed of 500 mhz and memory of 900 mhz, easly pumped up to 1000 if that bothers you like it does me .

You can't go wrong with the GeForce 6600GT. A $200 card that gives performance that only the luckiest had 6 months ago. I've never seen this kind of value in a card.
