Pros: I wanted to wait a month or so before writing my review, I'm glad I did I'm very happy with this choice! I upgraded from an XFX RX 580 GTR Black, and while it was a solid GPU for what I wanted to accomplish, the RX 6600 is a huge improvement from what I was used to. The moment I knew I could write a review finally was when I launched Rise of The Tomb Raider, I benchmark on High at 59fps and on Very High 58fps. I'm a novice when it comes to PC stuff, but the 580 was benchmarking less than half of that at low settings! Good card, pricing continues to improve, I purchased at $369.

Cons: My only con is spending $369 on a GPU, I bought my XFX RX 580 GTR in April of 2020 right when COVID blew up for 100 bucks, so maybe I got spoiled in that regard. But as I write this review it's up for $339!

Overall Review: -Definitely Recommend if coming from an RX 580 or a 1080 and want to accomplish 60fps across the board, good quality at what is currently the entry range for upgrading 3-5 year old cards -I'm absolutely in love blasting through CS Source, Max Payne 2, Ricochet, and Day of Defeat at a bajillion FPS -Hate justifying these prices, but the market is what it is, and will improve in time I'm certain That being said, I have no remorse for what I paid, product is solid 5 weeks in
