I just bought a Nvidia 6600GT 128mb AGP 8x video card from newegg, and I was wondering, how much FPS are you getting on average? Show all of your system specs please.

I'm about to buy this card as well, and one thing that anyone upgrading should keep in mind is that they may need to upgrade their power supply as well. These mid and upper level video cards require alot more power than the bargain cards.
I would think at the bare minimum you should have a 350 watt power supply to run this card, otherwise the performance can/will suffer.
Well, here are my system specs: P4 at 2.4 GHz 400w PS 1024 system RAM some crap integrated sound Windows XP SP2 9600pro (soon to be 6600gt)
So I guess I will be fine when it comes to the power supply.
I didn't make it!
The Leadtek 6600GT TDH variant is one of the fastest models in its class. It literally gives 6800 speed and quality as an AGP/128MB. Also, something to be aware of if you were to buy this particular model, WinFox is included. WinFox is an unusually user-friendly power management and OC application that, if used properly, CAN increase your video preformance noticably. The balancing factors are your memory speed, power supply and cooling techniques. These sometimes exaggerated hardware componants will adequately disperse the biproduct of overclocking your GPU, i.e. heat, memory allocation and power consumption. I've been nothing but impressed with my 6600GT TDH. And coming from the Ti4200, (essentially its predecessor in the late bloomer category) I was totally astounded at the speed and rendering capabilities. My HalfLife 2 and CS:S experience completely turned around. DOOM 3 isn't even missing a beat. BattleField 2 runs very well on Medium across the board @1024x768 and 85Hz, while Far Cry is practically a differant game with setting anywhere you want them (Very High across the board, but I like 1024, I personally wouldn't recommend a higher resolution). Overall, buy one and see what I mean. $150 has rarely been as well spent, honestly. Per your request... AMD64 3200+ ASUS A8V Ai Antec 400w PS 2x 512mb Mushkin Purple Dual Channel @400mhz LeadTek nVidia 6600GT TDH (Clocked in moderation) Do it, you won't regret it. Have fun!

I have one, 128mb PCI-E, runs all source engine games maxed out with 100 FPS. Runs BF2 well, but I need more system ram, loading times are kinda long with it set on medium high. It also takes a little while for my ram to fill after loading the map.

Epox 8k5A3+ with a XP 2700+ AMD 1024 2700ddr 350 watt silent psu Special modded leadtek 6800 (HW-unlocked pipelines and shaders) + arctic fan I get 8800 (little more but don't know exact number) in 3dmark02
I get the occasional lag but usually it lags a lot when the round begins and when I use the rocket launcher!

Shoot my old 5700 Ultra (128mb/400MHz dual) plays at decent frame rates. You should be fine. You just won't be able to turn eveything up. If you have a monitor (my old system has a MAG 19" monitor), you won't notice much of a drop in quality at lower settings, but on a flat panel (my new XPS has a 19" US Flat Panel) you can tell. Fortunately I have the ATI x800xt/256 on the i925x Express motherboard now, so I can crank it up...
Slightly cooler than a n00b

I've got a 6600 GT too (XFX version) and runs superbly, I run fine on High-Settings in BF2 and once I have time to tweak things some more I'll see how far I can push it. Runs great in Half-life 2 too.
