Texas Gaming Festival - 1000 Seat LAN April 22-24


I have in my hands yet another NVIDIA 6600 GT's. This time I have a GV-NX66T128D's from Gigabyte. I did my first 6600 GT review almost a month ago and I have yet to grow tired of these cards. I have reviewed 6600 GT's from Asus, eVGA, and now Gigabyte. If you haven't read any of my other 6600 GT articles you might not realize how awesome the NV43 GPU really is. For around $200 you get a video card able to play games so well it even rivals the ATI X800 in some benchmarks.

The Card

On this card Gigabyte delivers 128 MB of DDR3 memory, 8 pixel pipelines, and a 128 bit graphics core. This DX9.0c video card is right up there with the big boys for only$185. It is hard to beat this card when looking at the price to performance ratio.

As you can see the GV-NX66T128D based off of the reference 6600 GT design just like the eVGA and ASUS 6600 GT's I have reviewed. Gigabyte uses a modest but efficient HSF to cool the GPU  leaving plenty of room to add ram-sinks.

The gigabyte bundle is pretty good. As you can see on the front of the box you get a bonus of $110 worth of software. You get Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising, Thief: Deadly Shadows, and Power DVD 5. You also getV-Tuner 2, a very easy over-clocking utility. With the bundle you also get the standard drivers, static bag, DVI-VGA adapter, and cool dongle for TV-Out.

The System

My test system will be based on an Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe with the nForce 4 Chipset.. I will be using anAthlon 64 3800+, a gigabyte ofCorsair XMS memory, anH.E.C. Power OP 475 power supply, and aWD800 7200rpm IDE hard drive. I will be testing anAsus6600 GT, aneVGA 6600GT, and aGigabyte 6600 GT.
