    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 ...

    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. :)
