We just finished
looking at the new MSI
NX6600GT-TD128E and boy what a videocard it is. Even with a single card,
performance is quite good and it should be more than enough for the average
gamer. Hardcore users who are on a budget will definitely love the performance
of two NX6600GT-TD128Es running in SLI mode side-by-side.
In applications that support the SLI feature, framerates often increase up to
50%! While not every game can take advantage of SLI, nVidia's upcoming driver
set will reportedly allow you to create your own custom SLI profiles.
Everyone knows that MSI has the best videocard software bundle on the market
but it would be nice to see two or three different software sets instead of just
one. This way if someone goes with a SLI setup they don't have to get the same
bunch of games twice. I'm sure consumers
would be happy to see that they get twice the value and it would be another way
for MSI to differentiate themselves from the rest of the market. Just a thought
now that we're all buying two of everything for SLI reasons.
If you haven't guessed it, PCstats is extremely pleased
with this pair of MSI
NX6600GT-TD128E videocards, and what they bought to the table.
A single NX6600GT-TD128E is fast, and two in SLI mode can compete with a much
higher end and more expensive Radeon X800XT based video card in most
With a retail price of $225 CDN ($182US) for a single card, the
MSI NX6600GT-TD128E is pretty good bargin. If you're looking for a new PCI
Express videocard (or cards) get them while you can because I'm sure retailers
will have a hard time keeping these bad boys stocked!
