It flawlessly runs games such as Doom 3, HL2, CS:S, GW, and WoW on HIGHEST RESOLUTIONS / SETTINGS. Awesome card, i currently get an awesome score of 7880 in 3dMark03

And honestly If you really can, try and get the 6800. I was ordering a 6800gt from newegg, instead they sent me a 6800. Got bored and installed it, and there was a pretty big difference between the 6800 and my 6600gt gamewise. Benchmarks only showed a 1000 point increase. HL2 and CSS defualted to everything high 2xAA and 4xAF at 1280*960 @ 50- 96 Fps, when is was normally everything high and no AA or AF at 1280*960 at 40-80 fps.

Same with Battlefield 2, I was able to raise textures to high, and lighting and dynamic shadows to meduim with 2xAA at 1280*960 running 45-60 fps.

Dont get me wrong the 6600gt is an awsome cards, but the 6800 is just that much better.

Won't run it with AA and AF cranked up.

And for some reason, sometimes my 6600GT dislikes BF2, so I have to run it on medium, yeah.

And I score like 9k in 3dmark03
