GeForce 6600 Troubles ??? Please Help

Hi Guys

I have a GeForce 6600 AGP 256MB card in my system. I had to exchange my previous geforce 6600 because it kept on restarting my pc. The guy at the computer shop said that the 6000 series geforce card had some sort of error and that they broke done after a while. My pc is know again starting to restart and i don't know if the geforce is the culprit again.

Could anyone confirm that the 6000 series or the 6600 agp card are infact fatually flaud?

the geforce 6600 was a GREAT GPU. there were no known defects in the entire geforce 6000 line. (now the fx5000 series is a buggy ******.)

In reply to: sounds like bs to me

I play COH a lot and I have the same video card (Nvidia 6600) I have to run a program (Speedfan) so my system doesn't over heat and reboot.

This might help you I know it resolved my problem.
