    Hey guys ... long time reader, but first time poster :)

    I have a Quad G5 on the way with the stock video card. My question is how does this Nvidia 6600 compare to the Ati X800 XT that I have in my current G5? My gut is telling me it won't be nearly as powerful as my current Ati card. Thoughts or comments?

    Also, I am trying to list my current Dual 2.5Ghz G5 in the Marketplace section of this forum, but it won't let me start a thread there ... anyone know why? I can start a thread on every other section in this forum except that one ... weird ...

    -Mike

    You are correct about the 6600 versus the X800, not even close. The only card that compares (well actually flogs) would be the nVIDIA 7800 GT when it arrives. :(

    You need 100 posts minimum before you can post in the Maketplace section on this forum, so stop people spamming advertising.

    I would give the 6600 a spin, it might be better than you think. :)
