Hi all,

I'm planning to upgrade my ATI 9000 card to a GF card. Having no thought of
replacing my motherboard for the new PIC-X card, I am interested in the GF
6600 AGP card.

I'd like to know does the card require individual power supply? I've seen
some new GF cards with a power socket at its top corner. Wondering do I need
to feed it its power supply.

Second thing is would such card too much for my system. My system spec. is
as follow:

Asus P4P800
1GB Crucial DDR3200 RAM
120GB IBM SATA HDD
Intel P4 2.4GHz

Please advise.

Thanks,
Alex

IMHO If you are not having a 9800Pro or higher, 6600GT AGP is good choice
but more expansive and a tad slower than the pci-X version . May consider
6800 too.

Yep! It need a extra 12V power supply and preferably not to share it with
the harddisk.

Your system look good enough to justify the card.
May consider OC the CPU a bit :p

But for some unknown reason, some DX8 games no longer have the resolution
options higher than 1024¡Ñ768 >_<

Thanks for your information.

I just wonder is that 12V power supply those we have in a normal ATX power
box? If not, what can I do?

I suppose this GX card supports DirectX 9 which means it should have a very
good support of those Direct 8 games. Is it already a well known issue that
Nvidia still haven't got any patch or update to fix it?

Thanks a lot,
Alex

Yes, sure you have some spear one from the ATX power supply.

Or take a closer look of what I got ^^
http://www.gfe.com.hk/news/25/20041117104213.htm

It seems just my luck to have my favourite 3 games refused to run at
anything higher than 1024¡Ñ768, my other DX8 game do not have such
problem -_-

By the way, you may not find those DX8 games run much faster (the result
from 3DMark01 proved that). But you can used 4¡Ñ anti-aliasing without
slower the game too much.

Hope this help.
