I just got this in an email from Gigabyte, and it looks damn cool.  We are looking at a dual 6600GT card (that's right, one card) with 256 MB of DDR3 memory on a 256-bit memory bus, running at a memory clock of 600 MHz and a core clock of 500 MHz (each, I assume).  I have included the 1 page PDF file as an image they sent out below.

Subject: Graphics Cards | November 16, 2004 - 11:29 AM |
Tagged:

The PCI Express version of this card has been out for a few weeks, but the AGP version has finally also been released.  This card seems to be NVidia's successor to the low priced GeForce4 Ti 4200, with a fairly impressive performance boost, of course.  If jumping into PCI Express isn't in your plans, but a new videocard is, NVidia may have your answer.
