Strengths: Good SLi Performance with 83.90 drivers, average single card performance, and rather quiet when idle. Nice overclocking tool. Good performance to price ratio.
Weakness: Heats up quite a bit like other 6600GTs but tolerable, unless fan is operating at full speed. Artifacts sometimes when put on "Commander" overclock profile in DOT.
The card is good in single mode, being able to play most games today with the exception of Splinter cell chaos theory on high settings and FEAR as well. In SLi, due to the release 80 drivers, the performance meets and sometimes exceeds that of a 7800gt.

GeForce 6600 GT NX6600GT-TD128E by CrashOverdrive
Strengths: Very good performance and price. Big cooler
Very good for overclocking, you can overclock the card using D.O.T.(from MSI driver) at 550/1100 MHZ... I have Athlon 64 Venice 2600 MHZ(overclocked too :D, Asus A8N-E, MSI 6600GT, 1 GB Hynix DDR....i got in 3D Mark 2005 3670 points(no overcloking), 4200 points( at 590/1100), with volt mode it should get higher.. I did't try to get the memory higher becouse they aren't directly cooled, there is...

Very good for overclocking, you can overclock the card using D.O.T.(from MSI driver) at 550/1100 MHZ... I have Athlon 64 Venice 2600 MHZ(overclocked too :D, Asus A8N-E, MSI 6600GT, 1 GB Hynix DDR....i got in 3D Mark 2005 3670 points(no overcloking), 4200 points( at 590/1100), with volt mode it should get higher.. I did't try to get the memory higher becouse they aren't directly cooled, there is something betwen the cooler and the memory....Overall i think is the best 6600GT on the market...I tested a lot of 6600GT before i bought the 6600GT from MSI. I tested Asus(good), Palit(a week card, no DDR3), Gigabyte(good, too expnsive), Sparkle.Leadtek Win Fast(good, and a good price). MSI makes great products....

Strengths: quiet, inexpensive, high performance
MSI is always my first brand I will think about when it comes with my computer upgrade time. This is just another good product which made from MSI. I can play 1600*900 in HalfLife 2. However, it will lag very few time. You pay what you got. When I got money, I will go get the 6800GT instead.

Overall, great product. The manual...
Strengths: Great performance/cost ratio
Weakness: Software bundle is big, but doesn't include that much great stuff besides Halo
Overall, great product. The manual is fine, nothing exceptional. A previous reviewer said that this 6600GT does not have a temp sensor. He/she is WRONG, all 6600GT have a temp sensors. In some cases the BIOS may need to be flashed to have it show up on the settings for the GPU(my card showed its temperature without a BIOS Flash). Overall, great card, the package has a lot of 2nd rate items with...
