    mmm, maybe a 6200 for the PC would be good.
    Yes, the FPS would be a lot better.

    considering ur gf's rig .. the 6600GT would be a bit bottlenecked .... a 6600 would be the best ... and it would cost less than a 6600GT too.......

    And there will be a huge increase in fps ..... playing at high settings would just be so easy then ....

    The 6200 is very similar to the 6600, so they both are better options not to be bottlenecked.

    It will work and it will run much better, except she needs some ram cause 256 will cause texture loading in games at least 512 will do, I've seen them for less than $20 so its pretty cheap to upgrade.

    imho a 6600GT will do just fine, i run a 6800 in my machine, which has a 1.66 GHz cpu too, but i dont mind, i can cranck up the reso and detail, and still get monstrous frames, and i love it

    i would recommend you get a 6600GT, and 512 ram, that way your GF wont have to worry for a long while about being able to play the newest sims expansion packs

    6600gt would work just fine, but yeah bottleneck will do its worst. But then you can always upgrade later on. K7's prices are going down so yo can do that, also memory are cheaper now aswell. Shoot for 1gig pc3200. Even a cheap sempron can do you good.

    Its for his gf and upgrading the comp too much would just be a waste for her, just get 512 mb of ram, 1024 if she really needs it with the 6600gt should work smooth as butter.

    I went from a 5700le to the 6600Gt, and never blinked. Definite improvement.
    Only mildly OC'd to 575/1060 and very smooth, even in BF2.
    About the best (in my own opinion) for the money spent.
    Very decent mid-range card.
    Adding another matching stick of 256 RAm would also be a good idea.
    512 should be enough, exceptions:BF2 (which loads 500- over a gig of RAM usage) and prollly BloodReign, or the more intensive games.

    As mentioned RAM is pretty cheap now, as are 6600's.
    make sure you match the RAM stick to the old :

    when I first got this computer I had a 9600xt. 4 months later I switched to my current 6600gt and the performance difference is huge! @ drwngflies there is no 4000+ venice.
