- Galaxy GeForce 6600 256 MB PCI Express

Looking out for a decent PCIe based graphics card to pair up with your kickarse new nForce4 or LGA775 platform but money's suddenly looking a bit lacking? - The Galaxy GeForce 6600 256 MB PCI Express reviewed by the guys over at OverclockersOnline might be an option, offering a terrific mainstream GPU but with a no frills basic package/cooling solution, in turn lowering cost somewhat.. dont expect to overclock though!

 

It's typical for mainstream/budget GPUs to have a very basic software bundle, as we see with this card from Galaxy. The fact that they included at least one game is nice, but had they included a more recent game or game discount it might catch more people's attention.

 

On top of its software bundle, the card itself also has a very basic appearance. The one nice thing about the card is its bright blue PCB color. I actually have known people who buy parts based on color so that they will match case/mobo/etc. Just give me some good performance and I'll be happy.
