geforce fx 5200 vs. nvidia geforce 6600 gt
currently I'm owning a geforce fx 5200 128 MB. but now I want to upgrade to a nvidia geforce 6600 GT 128 MB. The price is approximately 215 Euro.
My question: can you advise me to buy this 6600 gt? So will i see a lot of difference in games?
system: intel p4 2.6 Ghz and 512 mb ram.
I've also seen another version of this card: the nvidia geforce 6600 DV ? what's up with that cause I don't trust the DV :s

yes! you will have a nice boost from the upgrade, the 6600gt is an mid range gfx and your current fx5200 is actually a "desktop" card, sot suited for games!
got a link from that DV?

Nope, lost the link sorry.
but can you give me an example in fps for let's say doom III or half-life 2.
I can give you the fps for my doom 3 settings:
I get about 33 fps with my fx 5200. Can you say approximately how much fps I will get with that 6600 GT?
I'm just curious how much the boost will be with this upgrade.

Thx for your reactions.
but maybe still one problem. My power supply is only 300 watt. will this be any problem with this new 6600 GT? I have connected a dvd writer, dvd-rom, floppy, and geforce fx 5200 now. So the only change will be the 6600 GT. but will this be enough? If I have to buy a new power supply, is there a difference between supplies for ide or sata? just in case....
Is there maybe a program wich tells you how much your power supply is? don't think sisoft sandra 2005 has this feature...
and i have read something about a mole x connector that is needed because agp doesn't have enough juice for this card. is the mole x connector included with the card? and is it difficult to install?

it depends, how many hard drives do you have?
The 6600GT is no power beast, but still!
What brand is your psu, if it is a cheap no name psu you probaly have to forget it!

The 6600GT AGP does need to be connected to your PSU via a molex connector. 400 watts is more the norm nowdays for PSUs and having a spare PSU around is advisable.
