Not so bad for what I need it for.
Pros: Get's the job done in 1440p Nice low profile Increased performance when paired with an AMD processor.
Cons: Street Pricing Bitcoin miners Paper sales
Overall Review: I'll admit, i would have liked a 6800XT originally, but I'm not blowing a third of my PC budget on just the card. so I snagged a 6600 at about 500 bucks, which would make anyone heave. It is what it is, and now I'm here. The 6600 isn't that bad of a card. Sure it has a bit less then a 6600XT, but the majority of games I play do not require a 3080 or 6800XT to play them optimally. I'm also running on a 1440p monitor which says a lot about the cards abilities. Siege runs at a solid 190FPS, Final Fantasy XIV hovers at 110 during Peak visuals, and Cyberpunk hits about 100 frames on High with medium shadows.. I'm not running Crysis on max settings, nor would I want to, so as long as I can get around 100-144 on the games I play, I'm good to use this until graphics cards actually normalize in 2077 when the internet collapses. -1 egg, price too high.
Pros: Great Graphics, Quiet fan
Cons: overheating problems, Crashes.
Overall Review: ive had this card for 1 month, and it ran fine, then i started to receive crashes, and a hot computer. my card could have been a lemon, because it left a bad taste in my mouth. ive had a 9500GT from MSI for 2 years no problems, but this upgrades cant make a new moon? i guess ill have to RMA it. 2 eggs 1 for its good graphics, and one for its quiet fan
