Pros Perfect for the gamer on a budget
Cons None really - Can't ask for more at this price
Summary I upgraded to the 6600GT from an ATI X300SE. Even though both have 128mb of memory, the 6600gt blows the X300 out of the water. The GPU as well as the speed of the memory make a huge difference. I was debating between the 6600gt and the X700. Both were around the same price, but I took CNET's advice and got the 6600GT. I couldn't be happier. The video stress test on Counter-Stike: Source ran at 105fps on the highest settings at 1152x864 resolution.

Pros Easy on power and low heat output
Cons People always want more, more, more
Summary Good graphics card for the price. I have the eVGA version and am pretty happy with it for now. I am getting into demanding games like Half-Life 2 and would like to crank up the eye candy, but this card only allows for some of that. No problem running at 1024x768 with 4x AA and 8x AF though. I have a fast computer behind it, people with slower computers may notice some problems. When I do upgrade, it will be straight to a 7800 GTX...then I can REALLY play games "the way they're meant to be played".Updated
Oh yeah, I just got 3591 on 3DMark 05...not bad for a $200 card.
Pros Cheap and powerful, supports SM3.0, looks cool, decent software package
Cons Marginal increase in HL2 performance
Summary Upgraded from a 9800Pro, notice a marginal boost, gained 1000 points in 3dmark03, and 500 in 3dmark05. Played Doom3 exceptionally well on my P4 3.0E system. HL2/CS:S at 1680x1050 noxAA and 8xAF max settings, just fine. I'd recommend this card to anyone that doesn't have a large gaming budget. Now I have a A64 3700+ and a x800XL, doubling every one of those scores. =)
Pros Plays hl2, doom3, farcry at all high settings very fast.
