New 6600GT

YAY my 6600GT finally arrived this morning, but not what I was expecting.

54fps CS:S 1024x768 with full grafix, no AA or AntiA
38,458 in AquaMark3 using default setup...

Surely they should be higher, check my sig below for machine spec.

Really? My 9600XT get 35,000-36,0000. The only thing limiting you would be the part that its a Celeron. Other than that. You system looks pretty kick-ass.

BTW: Have you had any issues with you ECS board?

Which drivers are you using?
Did you use driver cleaner to get rid of your old cards stuff?

I am using the latest ExtremeG drivers, I didnt use drivercleaner, but I removed the older drivers first and updated, but the old card was Nvidia aswell, using the latest Nvidia drivers.

The cheaper ECS boards are cr@p, I have RMA'd mine 3 times. Dont know what their higher end boards are like, but I have heard mixed opinions.

Because ECS have a socket 754, PCI-E board. The only one of been able to find. But I cant find an Australian re-sellar, so it doesnt make a great deal of difference.
